The MTA is enhancing service on three bus routes for weekend riders.

Beginning this Sunday, April 6, bus customers in Manhattan and Queens will benefit from enhanced service on three routes, including restoration of weekend service on the M8 and Q31 and the start of Sunday service on the Q77. The new bus service enhancements are part of an estimated $7.9 million slated to be invested throughout the city.

The service additions are part of the MTA's 2013-2014 Service Enhancement Program aimed at increasing and improving services for customers. Additions to M8 service will provide a direct link between the East Village and West Village with buses operating between 7 a.m. and 1 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

In Queens, the Q31 will operate on Saturdays between 8:20 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 9:10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Bus customers who use the Q77 will now benefit from full weekend service with the start-up of Sunday service in addition to existing Saturday service. Sunday service will run between 6:55 a.m. to 10:09 p.m.
