New York Pass, the all-in-one attraction pass card that grants pass holders admission to over 90 attractions across all five boroughs, announced today a new partnership with Big Bus New York that makes moving around the city that much easier. Now every One-Day New York Pass includes a free all-day tour on Big Bus New York (all multi-day passes come with a two-day tour) – a value of $62. Previously, New York Pass holders had to purchase a hop-on, hop-off bus package separately.

“The New York Pass is quickly becoming a mobile metro card for tourists,” said Ken Barrows, Vice President of Leisure Pass North America LLC, the parent company of New York Pass. “Our exciting new venture with Big Bus New York will allow our customers to maximize their use of each pass by giving tourists and locals the option of using Big Bus to have a seat with a view, or to simply travel between attractions.”

Big Bus Hop-on Hop-off Tours have over 30 stops throughout Manhattan and service major attractions such as the Empire State Building and Metropolitan Museum of Art every 15 minutes daily.

Each year, New York Pass enhances the features included and gives visitors and locals more bang for their buck. In 2015, New York Pass launched a new “10-Day Pass” to cater to international tourists staying in the Big Apple for lengthier periods of time and added new attractions such as the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and Fashion Windows Walking Tour. New York Pass recently launched a Mandarin version of its website to accommodate the growing surge in Chinese tourists.

Every New York Pass includes a free 200-page guidebook with detailed maps, hours of operation, tips and directions to every New York Pass attraction featured. The guidebook is also available for download in the Apple or Android store.
