Local and Limited-stop Service

Local and limited-stop buses provide service within a borough, or in some cases across two. While local buses make all stops along a route, limited-stop buses only make stops at busy transfer points, points of interest, and heavily used roadways. Limited stop service was first attempted with the M4 bus during rush hours in 1973, then expanded to other routes from there. The usual setup is that limited stop service runs the full route, while local services run only in the limited stop area, and the limited stop buses run local at the tail ends of the route not served by locals, similar to the operation of some subway services and the Staten Island Railway.

The following MTA Regional Bus routes run limited stop service:

  • Bronx: Bx1, Bx36 Bx41 and Bx55
  • Brooklyn: B6, B35, B38, B41, B44, B46, B49, B82, and B103
  • Manhattan: M1, M2, M4, M5, M98 and M101
  • Queens: Q4, Q5, Q6, Q10, Q17, Q25, Q27, Q36, Q43, Q44, Q46, Q50, Q52, Q53, Q58, Q65, Q83, Q85, Q100 and Q113
  • Staten Island: S81, S84, S86, S89, S90, S91, S92, S93, S94, S96 and S98

Limited-Stop buses flash LIMITED on the destination sign and a few have a Limited sign in the windshield.

Famous quotes containing the words service and/or local:

    Television could perform a great service in mass education, but there’s no indication its sponsors have anything like this on their minds.
    Tallulah Bankhead (1903–1968)

    In everyone’s youthful dreams, philosophy is still vaguely but inseparably, and with singular truth, associated with the East, nor do after years discover its local habitation in the Western world. In comparison with the philosophers of the East, we may say that modern Europe has yet given birth to none.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
