Tip number one for the bus rider is to pickup a free MTA map which shows bus routes, streets and subway lines all on the same page. Very useful. You'll be able to catch more than one bus from each stop, so watch for the signs on the front of each bus.

Bus stops are easy to locate, marked by red, white and blue strips at the side of the road. The buses are usually single-decker and mostly used by commuters, less so by tourists. Don't be put-off by this fact though. They provide a comfortable air-conditioned escape from the heat and fumes.

There are numerous stops around the city with the destinations clearly marked at each stop. They run along many of the main east/west streets and north/south routes too. Why not take bus M104 from Battery Park which will take you past City Hall, Grand Central and Trump Tower or Central Park and the Museums.

Bus drivers are not allowed at accept notes, just 5 and 10 cent coins and quarters or subway tokens. It's possible to change buses without having to pay again, by asking for a receipt -- a transfer paper -- when you pay your fare.

Buses also operate to and from the main airports. For example, from Penn Street Station (8th Avenue at 34th Street) and Grand Central (42nd Street at Madison Avenue) several buses will take you to most points of the city including the international airports. Staten Island, Brooklyn and other areas of the city outside Manhattan also operate efficient bus links.

Long-distance COACH rides on the legendary Greyhound network can be caught from the Port Authority Bus Terminal (8th Avenue at West 42nd Street). The Short Line commuter network also operates from here.
