Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We all know that for a fact, this was long overdue. On August 19, 2018, all of the Staten Island-Manhattan express bus routes have been redesign to offer simpler and direct routes, fewer stops to speed up the trips, and additional service for off-peak hours and weekends. The new routes originally planned consists of 21 express routes: 11 traveling to Midtown, 8 traveling to Downtown and 2 traveling to Greenwich Village via Battery Park City. The previously used “X” routes have been dropped in favor of “SIM,” or Staten Island to Manhattan, routes. This was the result of the two-year Staten Island Bus Study conducted by MTA, launch in 2015. The study analyzed trip performance data, ridership profiles and extensive customer input, to determine the must effective way to reconfigure the network. Service restructuring occurs from time to time to meet the frequency demands of ridership. Routes operate between Midtown/Downtown Manhattan and various parts in Staten Island. Most routes travel to and from Staten Island via the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and the Gowanus Expressway and then the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel into Lower Manhattan. Some routes use a somewhat faster alignment via the Goethals Bridge, the New Jersey Turnpike, New Jersey Route 495, and the Lincoln Tunnel directly into Midtown Manhattan. For more information about SIM, please refer to the link down below. Please enjoy this mega bus feast on this Thanksgiving day.

SIM: Staten Island-Manhattan
X=Park and Ride route (non-stop)
C=combination of Midtown and Downtown service
SIM7, SIM9, & SIM33 service to 14th St-Greenwich Village, via West St.
