The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is bringing back more than a dozen bus routes that were caught in a round of unpopular service cuts in 2010.

Beginning Sunday, full service will resume on 17 bus routes that were cut or shortened during the agency's budget crunch.

That includes two routes in the Bronx, seven in Brooklyn, three in Manhattan and five in Queens.

Two local bus lines and two express bus routes on Staten Island will be restored on January 20.

The MTA is spending $18 million to provide the additional bus service.

Several new regular and select bus routes are being added later this year.
