One thought on “MTA Board Approves New SI Bus Routes, Talks Construction Contracts and Worker Assaults

  1. The SI express bus ($6.50 fare) network re-design took over two years. But once Byford was in charge he was willing to listen to riders and elected officials input and changes were made to the original proposal. The HOV lanes on the Verrazano and Gowanus have shortened the commute a bit. The MTA is at least trying. But that new ‘SIM’ route prefix is cumbersome, the old ‘X’ designations worked fine for over 40 years. Once the new network is operational I expect that some routes will be tweaked.

    The SI local bus network doesn’t offer much opportunity for major changes or new routes due to SI’s limited arterial road network and lack of a borough-wide street grid.
