New York Transit Museum: ConnectedA Day in the Life of a Bus
 

The New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn features an extensive gallery entitled On the Streets: New York’s Trolleys and Buses, which is dedicated to surface transportation and presents a history of aboveground mobility for the last 175 years - from the early 1800s through the 21st Century. The Transit Museum followed a New York City Transit bus for 24 hours to create this photo essay, A Day in the Life of a Bus, which appears in the exhibit.
