What to Expect

For this Big Bus bus pass, you can redeem your voucher at any of the stops along the NYC routes, by showing it to a Big Bus staff member before boarding.

You can either choose to zoom along the 2-hour city loop and learn fun facts about the city from your guide as you go, or you can hop off at any of the stops to create your own self-guided tour of New York City. If there are a lot of attractions or areas you’d like to visit, you can plan your itinerary ahead of time. This pass helps you get from one point to another as you go through your day without the hassle of hopping in and out of cabs.

Some of the areas you can see include Greenwich Village, SoHo, Chinatown, the Upper West Side, and Manhattan. Stop in Central Park or visit Times Square—it's really up to you.

If you chose to upgrade your ticket, then you can go on either a night bus tour or a sightseeing cruise.
