Funeral arrangements are set for the city bus driver killed last week in a collision with a stolen truck in Greenwich Village.

A wake will be held for 49-year-old William Peña on Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Tillman Funeral Chapel in Manhattan.

A funeral will be held on Thursday before Pena is buried in Hillside, New Jersey.

The Transit Workers Union is planning a procession of buses from all depots in honor of the 17-year MTA veteran.

Peña was killed after police say 22-year-old Dominic Whilby slammed into an M14 bus with a stolen truck early Wednesday morning.

The crash hurled both vehicles into a nearby scaffolding, hurting four people including a passenger on Peña's bus.

Whilby has been arraigned on several charges, including assault and aggravated vehicular homicide.
