Roosevelt Island Tram Service Suspension

Will this mean tram renovations will be delay due to snowstorm?


There is no notice on RIOC's site of any delay in shutdown. The (S) bus fare is only $1 and they use the Red Buses, which don't have Metrocard fareboxes.


Looks like we'll see the entire 9-bus fleet in full deployment to cover both Red Bus and (S) bus duties.

I wonder if the D40lfs will serve the island or will it run on the shuttle? I would expect they run that NG on the shuttle as it is new.


I got on NG #5 on RIOC (S) Bus tonight at 2nd Av/59th St SW corner, right next to 58th St NW Q101 Bus Stop around 19:30.

It was nice ride.

NEWS: The Queens Plaza shuttle buses will be discontinued after tomorrow morning due to very low ridership.

Also, the Q102 buses are to end their alternating-hospital service starting next month, according to an MTA board meeting item:
