NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — The MTA is reevaluating a number of bus routes in the five boroughs in an effort to save the financially burdened agency millions.

Beginning in September, nearly two dozen bus routes will have redesigned routes.

Meanwhile, routes like the B38, BX35 and Q12 will have less frequent service. The MTA plans to use larger buses along those routes to also carry more passengers.

The agency announced they will also be reducing service on some routes during the weekends while increasing weekday service.

The changes are expected to save the MTA up to $7 million.
