MTA launches new bus service

The MTA is launching a new plan to get cross-town buses moving along 34th Street.

Select buses are now rolling cross town meaning commuters can pay their fare before boarding.

Officials believe this is an important step because 35 percent of the M34's travel time is wasted by buses idling and riders putting their metro cards in the fare box one at a time.
