S87 or X34 between S.I. and BK?

Recommended Posts

wat about if staten island did have an express bus (Limited Rather) to operate between Clifton Station (SIR), and Downtown Brooklyn? would it be an X=Express or an S=Staten Island Route?

 

To Brooklyn:

X34 DWTWN BKLYN

X34 via BAY ST

X34 via 4 AV

 

To Staten Island:

X34 CLIFTON

X34 CLIFTON SIR STATION

X34 via 4 AV

X34 via BAY ST

 

To Brooklyn:

S87 DNTWN BKLYN

S87 via BAY ST

S87 via 4 AV

S87 LIMITED

 

To Staten Island:

S87 CLIFTON

S87 CLIFTON SIR STATION

S87 via 4 AV

S87 via BAY ST

S87 LIMITED

 

can that happen?

I wouldn't mind. lol. Maybe 3rd Avenue would make more sense, and it could merge with the B37, which is lightly used, and run out of Jackie Gleason Depot

I also think the S87 LTD would be better than an express route. In Brooklyn, at least (cause I don't know much about SI), it should make stops at 86th Street/Ft Hamilton Pkway, 86th Street/5th Ave, 86th Street/4th Ave, 3rd Ave/77th St, 3rd Ave/Bay Ridge Ave, 3rd Ave/60th St, 3rd Ave/52nd St, 3rd Ave/39th St, 3rd Ave/20th St, 3rd Ave/9th St, 3rd Ave/Union St, 3rd Ave/Dean St and than local via B37 to Court St/Livingston St. The B37 would be discontinued, and I think the S87 LTD could be a rush hour only bus like all the other Staten Island Limited Routes. I'd split this route between Gleason and Castleton. This seems like a good idea, and I put a lot of thought into it. lol

 

Luis1985, what stops would be placed on Staten Island?

I like your idea too. For SI, since it begins at Clifton , I would say Bay St/ St. Johns Ave, The Fort Wadsworth area, then over the Verrazzano Bridge.

Great suggestion! And as stated above, the route can probably be merged with the B37 into S.I.

there was a Brooklyn-SI express bus. it was the X8. It was one of the (NYCT)'s first express routes. It was discontinued in the 80's due to low ridership

I wouldn't use Clifton SIR as a terminal point. That station can't handle large crowds of people due to its extremely narrow island platform.

 

Rather, I would create express routes starting at the 36th Street subway station in Brooklyn that would serve different areas of Staten Island.

I wouldn't terminate a route @ SIR Clifton either, but what would be the point of sending express routes to 36th st, panning out to different parts of SI, when riders would have to take the train to get to downtown brooklyn anyway? It's not much different for a Staten Islander taking the S53 or the S79 to brooklyn, to the subway, to get downtown......

 

In plain english, I don't think Staten Islanders would pay for an express bus, just to have it drop them off at a subway station....
