[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 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.
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.
[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.
