NEW YORK — Private operator Megabus is plotting a return to the New York City area as the city attempts to comeback from the coronavirus pandemic.

Beginning June 1, Megabus will run on a limited schedule between New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington. All other New York City-based routes remain suspended through at least June 17.

The company is setting boundaries to try and follow CDC guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic. All passengers will be required to wear facial coverings in places where social distancing isn’t possible. Buses will also reduce seats on double deck vehicles and be washed and wiped down on a daily basis.

Additional measures include individual hand sanitizers for all employees, disinfectant wipes on all buses and an updated rescheduling policy. You can see Megabus’ limited schedule here.
