Hi, I’m not a NYer but live here now and need to figure out how to take the bus. How do I pay? I imagine I don’t hand them money... how much does each trip cost? Anything else I should know?

The only other thing you should know is to pretend to look out the window or at your phone when the mothers are spanking and kicking their children screaming at them that they'll kick them outta there house and shaming them.

Otherwise, enjoy the ride.
