Which 'tour' bus would that be?

City sightseeing, bus to Atlantic City, Bus to casinos in Connecticut, etc.....?

You need to be a bit more specific.

Bombshell, it depends which tour bus company you are using--take a look at the sites that the first responder provided.

Most of the tour buses start somewhere near Times Square so I'd take the Times Square shuttle (subway) from Grand Central to Times Square and go from there. The Grayline hop on/off is prob. most popular. I think the nypartyshuttle.com is very good.

bombshell - I'm not quite sure you understand that NYC is a working city.

It is not a theme park in the sense that when you get there you will be picked up in a "tour bus" and taken around to see all there is to see.

All the "sights" that tourists crave are not in one certain area - they are all over the island of Manhattan.

Hence, when you arrive you must pick and choose a tour bus company, the first responder offered some good links to a couple.

Just had to get this off my chest.....as you seemed to have somewhat a 'tunnel vision' based on your original and subsequent questions.
