DOWNTOWN CONNECTION BUS ROUTE UPDATE

Starting the week of May 22, 2023, in an effort to make the route more efficient, the Downtown Connection Bus will no longer be making a U-turn on West Street. Instead, it will turn left directly onto Murray Street.

This will only impact Battery Park City-bound service. As a result, the bus will no longer be stopping at Vesey Street / North End Avenue and North End Avenue / Murray Street, and will now be stopping at Murray Street / North End Avenue.

Bus Stops: Did You Know?

Overnight from 10PM to 5AM, you can ask your NYCT bus operator (driving a local bus only, not express or SBS) to let you off at locations that aren’t bus stops. They’ll find a safe place along the route to stop the bus and let you out.
