NEW YORK (CBS 2) — The MTA was alerting bus riders about possible service cuts.

An MTA committee approved a plan that will reduce the number of buses on 40 routes in all five boroughs.

The agency said it will save $300,000 a year with the cost-cutting plan.

The full MTA Board was scheduled to vote on the proposal on Wednesday.

If approved, the service cuts will go into effect in April.
