Until recently the New York Pass offered two pass types – one including a CitySights bus tour ticket and one without. This has now changed, and all New York Passes include Big Bus Hop-on, Hop-off ticket. The 1 day pass includes a 1 day bus ticket and all other pass durations (2, 3, 5, 7 & 10 day) include a 2 day bus ticket.
This change has been accompanied by a rise in the price of the passes, so for anyone who doesn’t plan on using the bus ticket it could make the New York Pass slightly less competitive. However, an open-top, hop-on, hop-off bus is a good way to see the city, especially if you have limited time, and is definitely worth considering as an alternative to the subway.
