I think those trips to the Probation Office were just a relabeling of those "via Yaphank" trips that have always ran.

No, it's separate from those "via Yaphank" trips. The trips to/from Center Moriches doing that (which don't serve the Yaphank Industrial portion). Only one PM trip will be serving the Probation office, then down to Bellport, then up to the Yaphank Industrial center, before going to Patchogue.

Compare the schedule maps too, that'll show what I mean.

Wait did they stop splitting the 5:30 S66? Because the S66 5:30 run was already a split run at Shirley. Or at least I believe it was that run, I know it was a run around that time.

Long overdue, IMO.

Nope - two different parts of Yaphank, bro....

- The current S68 runs along Station rd (serving N. Bellport) - with a couple trips that then run up to Sills Industrial park in Yaphank...
- The probation office OTOH is well east of Station rd, over there off Yaphank av.....

The bus map does the S68 too much justice (pun completely unintended; probation office <--> justice)... It'd have you think that all trips run to Ctr. Moriches via Sills Industrial, then via either [Montauk Hwy.] or [South Country rd].... It makes Zero indication that buses end in Bellport Village (South Country rd/Station rd)  - which is where most S68 trips terminate at....
