MTA proposing 'back door bus exits' only

The MTA wants New Yorkers to think outside the box-- or better still-- think of a new way to get off the bus. The MTA is starting a pilot program next month on Fordham Road in the Bronx.

Riders on the "select bus service" will be encouraged to exit from the back of the bus only.

The next step is to have riders pay their fare, in advance, at the bus stop.

Then they can board in either the front or back of the bus.
