    [QUOTE=Piper;3256226]Question for anyone who speaks 'bus'. What is the 310 and 164,as opposed to the 351 which appears to still be running?[/QUOTE]

    [QUOTE=isired;3256468]i think jumba just [B]typo'd 310[/B], he probably meant 351 - that's the 'special events' bus, the usual gameday bus. the 164 is the normal NJ transit bus that services the area, on gamedays it doesn't go into the complex while the 351 is running, but it does before/after.[/QUOTE]That's true, I thought 351 was to be retired upon rail completion but seems that's not the case. 164 is still good for folks who want to get there > 3hrs before gametime. Must've been visually or mentally challenged the day I answered, sorry for the confusion.

    I guess one advantage of the trains is that they don't have numbers

    fine.... enjoy it


    especially the 90 minute line to get on one to go back if you wait until the end of the game

    primarily because there buses hold 40-50 people and trains normally hold 3-6 times that number (depending on how many cars there are)


    but go ahead and enjoy your buses and traffic jams on the way to the tunnel


    the more folks that take that route, the less wait for the rail service..


    EVERYBODY PLEASE TAKE THOSE BUSES TO THE PORT AUTHORITY

    i'm not here to argue what will have a LONGER line, I'm here to ask if you're sure you can easily get on train after a reg season game and if not, how long do you have to wait until the next one?

    I just verified by phone that the bus is, "still running for now." I've never taken the bus back, but for 1.5hrs you could probably walk to another line. I think the 164 used to make stops at the Sheraton.

    you also could take the bus there and the train back. That's probably the best of all worlds, at least if you time the train right.

    Lol..... Did you ever notice that when there's a bus/train/boat accident in India the casualties are 500 minimum?

    Not funny, but consistent.

    I am hoping that with the train and bus running, the wait time will be lessened for both. I tried to access a Giants site to see if posters commented on the new commute, but I couldnt view threads unless I registered. :steamin:And I wont do that.

    figured about 40 miles RT from northern queens at 20 miles a gallon at 3 bucks a gallon


    It was a personal estimate, not meant to be a generic estimate covering all locations

    [QUOTE=JamaicanJetFan;3223713]In theory, what's the best way to the stadium from Grand Central Station?[/QUOTE]

    Anyone coming into Grand Central, I suggest just taking the S shuttle to 42ns St/Port Authority and hop on a 351 bus.

    If you really wanted to take the train you could:

    Take the same S line to 42nd/Port Authority, switch to either the 1/2/3 or A/C to get to Penn Station, hop on a NJTransit train to Seacaucus, switch at Seacaucus for a Meadowlands train. Or just take a 10 minute/$7 cab ride to Penn.

    Either way, anyone that can get to Port Authority fairly easily, I suggest you take the bus. With all the LIRR and Jersey people now taking the train, the bus should be a lot less crowded than in previous years.
