Vintage Bus Festival

June 10, 10 am4 pm.

The New York Transit Museum’s famous festival of vintage buses and surface vehicles returns! At the beloved Bus Festival, guests can explore buses from the vintage fleet, representing more than 90 years of New York City surface transit history. Enjoy photo ops, meet some of the bus drivers who help keep our city moving, check out our pop-up shop, and take in the view of the Manhattan skyline from the newly restored Emily Warren Roebling Plaza underneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

Bus Festival is free! The event runs rain or shine with 3:30pm as the last entrance time for vehicles.

Bus Festival visitors can test their detective and observational skills while exploring buses from the past. Meet at the Education Tent and pick up a scavenger hunt activity sheet. This activity is fun for visitors of all ages and those who find all items can pick up a special transit-themed temporary tattoo.

Guests can also visit the New York Transit Museum Store pop-up shop for toys and transit merchandise and stop by the Museum’s membership table to learn about Museum exhibits and programs and become a member for perks including one year of free Transit Museum admission!
