MTA Launches Interstate Bus Service

Staten Islanders now have an MTA provided link to the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Line via the Bayonne Bridge, reports The route replaces a similar one operated by Coach USA. The bus line is the MTA's first interstate service. We think in principle this is a step in the right direction-- after all, we're proponents of extending the future Second Avenue subway line to Staten Island's defunct North Shore Line via Jersey City and Bayonne, a route essentially mirrored by the combination bus, light rail, and PATH connections. Time will tell if ridership reaches the hoped for 1,200 per day.
