MTA to Add High-Speed Bus Routes to LaGuardia Airport from Manhattan, The Bronx, and Queens

New York City says it will add three high-speed bus routes to LaGuardia Airport from Manhattan, the Bronx and Queens starting next year.

City and transit officials announced the new Select Bus Service routes on Thursday. The faster service will have dedicated travel lanes and curbside payment.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the new service will cut travel time for people flying in and out of New York.

The proposed routes are the M60 that runs along 125th Street in Manhattan, a new route via the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway from Woodside and Jackson Heights, Queens and a proposed Select Bus Service from Webster Avenue in the Bronx.
