You say that like the route ends in Dix Hills now....

There's not much of a point in stubbing the S29 like that.... Cutting it short of Jericho Tpke, short of Whitman mall, & killing weekend service on top of it, isn't going to do that route any justice.....

I'd like to know why you picked the S29 and not the S23, since the S29 was for a time the only bus going from Babylon to Walt Whitman Mall. (While apparently for a time having a offshoot to SCCC-Brentwood or somewhere around there, before the S33 was extended to Hauppauge in 1987 or so)

Does the S29 just not draw as many passengers any more then the S23 does?


As a not for the S31 for a time it use to go up to the old Suffolk School (The full name escapes me at the moment) in Melville. I don't know how frequently it did but since it was shown like the above mentioned S29 offshoot I assume not very frequently.

Thanks for the brief history lesson, but this nonsense about having the S29 run weekdays only & cutting it back to Dix Hills isn't my idea.... You should be asking catman this question.

I don't have any official stats in front of me, but from my experiences at least, the S29 tends to carry more than the S23.... I would leave the route alone.

Sorry B35 I was asking Catman. I must have not realized that I quoted you when I started my reply. 


Can I ask what time of day your experiences are with the S29?   I only ask because I noticed a few times near the end of the day EBT seems to put a Spirit of Mobility on the S29.

No problem.

As far as my experiences with the route, it's mainly been on Saturdays, anywhere from, say, 11am to 2pm (either direction; from Whitman Mall or from LIRR Babylon)... Many moons ago though (when I had the free time for it), I also would embark on it, on weekdays, around the same timeframe (11am to 2pm)... The S29 was usually my go to (route) to get to Babylon whenever I used to ride the old full route of the N79 from Mineola to Whitman....

I find that the S29 moves at a better rate, on top of being more useful for more people,,,,

I'm always surprised when I see a Spirit of Mobility tracker being used on the S29, since I always assumed the S29 carried a fair amount of people since they have used 40ft's on it.

Unless they carry less during the late afternoon/early evening then they do the rest of the day.
