S79 Select Bus ServiceEdit

Operated as a Select Bus Service (SBS) route with specially-wrapped buses, the S79 provides full-time limited-stop service. Formerly a local route, the S79 was converted to an SBS route in 2012, with the number of stops cut by about three-quarters.[20] But unlike the SBS buses in the rest of New York City, S79 fares are collected on board the bus, not at machines at the bus stops.

Bus route historyEdit

Except for the S61, all current Staten Island bus routes originally had different designations before they were renumbered by service patterns, as follows:[29]

  • S4x: North Shore services
  • S5x: North-south cross-island services
  • S6x: Victory Boulevard services
  • S7x: South Shore services
  • S8x & S9x: Limited-stop versions of their respective local routes ending in the same number. (Ex: S62/S92, S48/S98). The S81, S84, and S86 are limited-stop versions of the S51, S74, and S76 respectively, while the S91, S94, and S96 are limited-stop versions of the S61, S44, and S46 respectively.[26]:D.9

On April 2, 1989, routes on the North Shore of Staten Island were renumbered.[30]

The implementation of this numbering scheme was completed on April 15, 1990, when the final eight routes, all from St. George, were renumbered.

Old and new routes are given below, along with discontinued service patterns. In addition, before 1975, routes were designated with R (for Richmond, the borough's official name before 1975) instead of S. The R designation is shown in the "Old Route" section. S8x routes run north-south while S9x routes runs east-west.

Old route Terminals Streets traveled New route History
R1 St. George Ferry

Ramp "A"

Port Ivory Richmond Terrace S40
  • Original western terminal was Port Ivory (Procter & Gamble Plant on Western Avenue)
  • Renumbered the S1, and then the S40 on April 2, 1989. On this date the route's western terminus was swapped with the S107, which was renumbered the S48 at the same time. Free transfers began being offered to the S46 and the S48.[30]
  • Port Ivory service was later discontinued (resulting in South Avenue receiving service from both routes)
  • When the Howland Hook Container Terminal opened (also on Western Avenue), the service was extended to service that facility, starting on January 12, 1998, between 5:30 a.m. and midnight.[31]
  • When the apartment buildings on Holland Avenue were built, the end of the line was Holland Avenue and Richmond Terrace, with only certain trips to Howland Hook to accommodate the employees' work schedules
  • A.M. rush hour service was supplemented by service from Andros Ave and Richmond Terrace to the ferry and Park Avenue & Richmond Terrace to the ferry
  • P.M. rush hour service was also supplemented with the same destinations in reverse
R2 St. George Ferry

Ramp "B"

  • R2MB: Lincoln Avenue & Richmond Road, Grant City.
  • R2SB: Sand Lane & Seaside (now Father Capodanno) Boulevard, South Beach.
  • R2MB: Bay Street, Seaside (now Father Capodanno) Boulevard, Lincoln Avenue, Midland Avenue.

  • Service from Midnight to 5 a.m. was terminated at Midland Avenue and Kiswick Street
  • R2SB discontinued; Arrochar segment merged into the S104
  • In January 1990, alternate buses began running through Fort Wadsworth between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.. Around January 12, 1991, the grounds of the United States Naval Station at the Fort were closed to the public due to security concerns due to the beginning of the Gulf War. The restriction became permanent after the war.[32]
  • On March 27, 1995, alternate S51 buses during weekday rush hours in the off-peak direction, from St. George between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and from Grant City between 3 and 5:30 p.m.. The began running through Fort Wadsworth at the request of the Defense Logistics Agency, which moved several employees to the Fort. Other alternatives considered included diverting all S51 service between 6 a.m.. and 7 p.m. and diverting the S53 and reverse peak-direction express bus trips.[32]
R3 St. George Ferry

Ramp "C"

Walloon Street & Maple Parkway, Mariners' Harbor Castleton Avenue, Clove Road, Richmond Terrace, Nicholas Avenue, Innis Street, Morningstar Road, Walker Street. S46
  • Renumbered the S3, and then the S46 on April 2, 1989.[30]
  • Extended to Grandview & Forest Avenues, Mariners Harbor and later Chelsea (West Shore Plaza).
  • Service was extended to West Shore Plaza on June 26, 1994 from Grandview Avenue and Forest Avenue from 8:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays and from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., corresponding with the shopping center's hours. Service was extended in response to requests for the extension from the office of the Staten Island Borough President, the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, the owner of the shopping center and other groups. Before the extension, there was no bus service to the Plaza, requiring employees and shoppers to walk a mile from the S62 bus. NYCT studied extensions of the S40, S46, S48 and S62, and decided to extend the S46 because it did not make diversions and did not branch, for its connections to other bus routes and the SIR, because it connected to a large apartment complex, and because it offered good accessibility to residential areas on the North Shore. The extension also provided access to the Teleport, an office park constructed by the Port Authority. The extension was done through an agreement with the developer of the shopping center, and required the elimination of some parking spaces. The extension received more ridership than expected, with an additional 450 riders compared to the projected 200 to 250 riders. In June 1996, the span of service in the peak hour in the off-peak direction was increased in the morning for workers and early morning shoppers, with the first bus leaving St. George at 6 a.m..[33]
  • The opening of the Teleport, on South Avenue, prompted limited service in conjunction with employee work hours. Service began on August 29, 2011.[34]
