Improvements at these five stations will also feature repair or replacement of mezzanine to platform stairs, mezzanine floors, doors and windows, and interior and exterior walls. Each station will be painted and canopies, windscreen panels and railings will also be replaced. Customers will also benefit from new lighting in the mezzanines, and new artwork. The construction contracts were awarded in December 2013 as a joint venture to Forte Construction Corp and Emis Construction Group

Select Bus Service to Debut on the M60 Starting Sunday, May 25

May 23rd, 2014

If you’ve been waiting for a faster way to get to LaGuardia Airport, the wait is over and your bus has come in. MTA New York City Transit is beginning service Sunday (May 25) along the new M60 Select Bus Service (SBS) route, which connects Manhattan’s Upper West Side and LaGuardia Airport’s Marine Air Terminal.

The M60 becomes the seventh SBS route to be installed along busy bus corridors around the city, in partnership with the New York City Department of Transportation and the New York City Police Department. Additionally, the upgrade to the M60 also required the cooperation of the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey, which manages the airport.

M60 SBS extends from 106th/Broadway in Manhattan, across 125th Street and along Astoria Boulevard to LaGuardia Airport. The route has a growing ridership that now tops 17,000 on an average weekday. About 32,000 customers each day board and alight from the five bus routes serving the 125th Street corridor, which is a major stop on 12 subway lines and Metro-North Commuter Railroad.

“The continued expansion of SBS services throughout the city is changing the way our customers think about taking the bus and the M60 will now change the way customers think about getting to and from LaGuardia. Select Bus Service is designed around the philosophy of speed, efficiency and convenience which combine to make bus riding more pleasant and less time consuming,” said MTA Chairman Thomas Prendergast. “We have seen tremendous support and positive feedback for SBS and look forward to working with our partners to expand it to other high-capacity routes.”

“This new service will save customers precious time and provides an easy connection to several subway lines as well as Metro North. It will benefit Harlem residents who rely on efficient bus service along 125th Street every day and will make getting to the airport a breeze from upper Manhattan,” said NYC Transit President Carmen Bianco. "The City’s economy depends heavily on our mass transit system and making improvements like SBS provides enormous benefits in the area of time saved.”

SBS utilizes high-capacity articulated vehicles with distinctive exterior graphics that make the buses easily identifiable. The idea behind Select Bus Service is the implementation of a high-performance bus system, incorporating the efficiency and capacity of light rail transit without the limitations and construction costs of a fixed-rail system. Other major elements of SBS include designated bus lanes and the application of a distinct graphics design. Combined, these service components could produce decreased travel times of up to 20% for M60 customers, while also benefitting riders of the local routes that travel crosstown via 125th Street.


The introduction of Select Bus Service to the M60 will speed trips to LaGuardia and across 125th Street, an often congested thoroughfare that slowed bus rides to a crawl. Helping to create this faster service is the requirement that customers pay their fares prior to boarding using MetroCard or Coin Fare Collectors at the Select Bus Service bus stops along the route. The fare remains the same as a local bus
