New York City says new crosstown bus service is designed to get passengers through midtown Manhattan a little faster.

Transportation officials said Monday that they've expanded a program called "select bus service" to 34th Street. The route services about 33,000 passengers a day.

Select buses travel in a dedicated lane. Riders buy tickets at bus stops. They can board at the front and the rear.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a city report finds that select bus service has shaved 12 minutes off a trip from South Street Seaport to 125th Street. That service started a year ago on the M15 route, along First and Second avenues.
