In New York City, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has the monopoly on bus service. There are approximately 5,600 MTA buses in operation across the five boroughs, transporting millions of passengers to their various destinations.
With so many buses on the roads, it is no wonder that accidents occur. Our NYC bus accident attorneys represent pedestrians, bus passengers, and occupants of other vehicles who have been harmed in collisions involving these massive vehicles.
