Governor Cuomo announced yesterday that there will be a significant upgrade of the MTA's bus fleet to include more than 2,000 new buses with tech-friendly features by 2020.
The Governor, joined by MTA Chairman and CEO Thomas Prendergast and MTA New York City Transit President Ronnie Hakim, introduced the next generation vehicles to the public, as well as previewed enhanced amenities like USB charging ports and Wi-Fi. The new buses, which will replace nearly 40 percent of the MTA’s current fleet and represent a $1.3 billion investment of Capital Program resources, will begin hitting streets next month.
In the announcement video, Governor Cuomo said that the new bus design looked "European" and "Ferrari-like."
