New York City buses are moving to catch up with its riders' technology.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will add more than 2,000 new buses to its fleet in the next five years, and the upgraded vehicles will feature amenities like USB charging ports and free Wi-Fi.
These new vehicles, which will run the city $1.3 billion, will replace nearly 40 percent of the MTA's current fleet.
"We're reimagining the MTA to improve services for all New Yorkers," said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in a statement this week. "Today's world demands connectivity, and we're meeting that challenge with state-of-the-art buses and a major overhaul of the MTA's fleet."
New York City is not the first city to implement these technological amenities. Kansas City, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Atlanta and others already offer some Wi-Fi on public buses.
