New York Transit Museum Bus Festival
New York Transit Museum Bus Festival 2011
The Annual Bus Festival ia a great opportunity for everyone to see and experience vintage buses from the MTA’s fleet. The MTA Transit Museum joins Atlantic Antic, Brooklyn’s largest street fair, for what promises to be a fantastic family Sunday. A large vintage collection of buses and guest vehicles will be ready to board! Additional activities include children’s workshops and bus tours.
Admission to the museum, one block away on Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street, will be free from noon to 5 p.m.
The New York Transit Museum is a museum which displays historical artifacts of the New York City Subway and bus systems; it is located in the unused Court Street subway station in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, New York City. (On the web: http://mta.info/mta/museum/index.html)
There is a smaller Annex in Grand Central Terminal, Manhattan.
The Museum also has a sizable retired bus fleet. However, there is no area set aside for their permanent exhibition. They are stored in Bus depots around the city and brought out for special events, such as the Museums’ annual “Bus Festival.”
