During the week, weather depending, bus customers along Manhattan’s 42nd Street crosstown corridor will be able to ride examples of NYC Transit’s vintage fleet. It’s an annual opportunity to catch a vintage bus and everything will be original except the bus operator and the fare box. Ralph Kramden is no longer with us and the fare boxes accept MetroCards.
Buses representing models that operated from the 1950s through the 1980s will roll across 42nd Street along the M42, allowing bus customers to take a nostalgic river to river ride. Built by manufacturers that either no longer exist or have just stopped building transit buses, these classic vehicles represent the newest of technology in operation during their eras.
The buses, which are not wheelchair accessible, will operate between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday from December 2 to 20. However, they will not run in the event of rain and snow. They are old and catch cold easily.
