Some bus riders in New York City will soon have to decide whether to pick door number one, two or three.

Passengers are encouraged to enter at the front of the bus and exit at the rear in order to keep the buses running on schedule.

The MTA has ordered 328 buses equipped with a third door.

Some long, accordion buses with three doors were recently introduced on some crosstown routes in Manhattan.

The MTA already is using three-door buses on its Select Bus Service routes.
