Gov. Cuomo announces buses equipped with Wi-Fi, USB ports to hit Bronx streets
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that 83 new buses equipped with Wi-Fi and USB ports are coming to the Bronx.
Each of the buses will have between 35 and 55 USB ports as part of a $1.3 billion overhaul.
The new buses are part of the governor's attempts to revive MTA bus transportation. Over the next five years, over 2,000 buses will hit city streets, replacing 40 percent of the current fleet.
"These new, state-of-the-art buses will better connect passengers who are on the go, create a stronger mass-transit system to bring New York into the future," Cuomo says.
The MTA's Select Bus Service will also be equipped with Wi-Fi and USB ports. Forty-three of them have been introduced so far in the Bronx and Queens.
