According to [The New York Times, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and New York City plans to make improvements on the bus routes leading to La Guardia, one of the busiest airports in the entire country.

Several plans will be implemented in order to accomplish this.

The MTA plans to give the M60, the only bus route leading from Manhattan to La Guardia, Select Bus Service. This includes such aspects as paying before boarding, bus-only lanes, and updated technologies that hope to decrease travel time. In Queens, there will be a whole new bus route has been proposed. MTA chairman, Joseph J. Lhota, stated these changes are intended to not only convenience passengers but La Guardia employees as well, of which there is more than 8,000. These changes are intended to be implemented in 2013 and 2014.

Because of these proposed changes, travel and clothing manufacturer, Surf Patch, has released a statement giving praise to these potential changes. World traveler Takara Licausi stated, “It's obvious that traffic in New York City has always been a nightmare. It is good that the MTA and the city itself understand this concern.” She continued, “However, it would be prudent to see these changes made as soon as possible so passengers, especially frequent fliers, can have a quicker time to [fly clear.”
