M116 Bus Route in Harlem Is Free Starting Today as Part of MTA Pilot

M116 Bus Route in Harlem Will Be Free as Part of MTA Pilot by September

The M116 bus route serving East Harlem, Central Harlem and Morningside Heights is free starting today.

The fare-free route is part of an MTA pilot that includes a total of five bus lines across the city: the Bx18 A/B, B60, M116, Q4 LCL/LTD, and S46/96.

The program, which will last from six to 12 months, features routes that were chosen based on factors like ridership, fare evasion, equity for low-income communities, and access to employment and commercial activity, according to the announcement made in July.

Buses on the free lines will be marked "fare-free"; they will not include transfers to other bus or subway lines.

The M116 bus route runs between W 106th Street/Broadway and E 120th Street/Pleasant Avenue, mostly along 116th Street, Manhattan Avenue and W 106th Street.
