Select Bus Service

Select Bus Service (SBS), marked on the buses as +selectbusservice, is a brand used by MTA Regional Bus Operations for bus rapid transit service in New York City. SBS began service in 2008 in order to improve speed and reliability along multiple long, busy limited-stop corridors. The first route to run under the SBS branding was the Bx12 along Fordham Road and the Pelham Parkway. There are currently five SBS routes along four corridors, with three additional routes to begin service in late 2013.

Famous quotes containing the words service, select and/or bus:

    For those parents from lower-class and minority communities ... [who] have had minimal experience in negotiating dominant, external institutions or have had negative and hostile contact with social service agencies, their initial approaches to the school are often overwhelming and difficult. Not only does the school feel like an alien environment with incomprehensible norms and structures, but the families often do not feel entitled to make demands or force disagreements.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    I don’t wish to give offense when I suggest that this country should select a king, or even a queen, rather than a president. One isn’t that quick to shoot a king or a queen—the majesty of royalty, you see.
    David Webb Peoples, screenwriter. English Bob (Richard Harris)

    Nora was always free with it and threw her heart away as if it was a used bus ticket.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
