The MTA recently rolled out the annual Holiday Bus. Operating on different routes throughout the month of December, the Holiday Bus will make regular stops while in service but passengers will NOT be required to pay the regular fare.

The specially decorated bus, complete with Santa and two elves will run Monday through Friday throughout December and will operate on various local bus routes across the city. Times will vary as we try to reach as many customers as possible. Passengers will be greeted by Santa and his elves, who will hand out free candy canes while holiday music adds to the festive ambiance.

“Bringing our riders features such as the Holiday Bus is part of the reason I am excited to be back at the MTA, said Robert Smith, MTA Administrator & CEO. “Helping to deliver the spirit of the season to riders, along with the kind of public transportation our passengers deserve, is a great way to celebrate the holiday.”
