Staten Island getting select bus service

August 31, 2012 4:39:06 AM PDT
Select bus service comes to Staten Island, starting this Sunday.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other government officials announced the new and hopefully faster service Thursday.

The S79 will travel from the Staten Island Mall to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

It runs on a dedicated lane on Richmond Avenue and Hylan Boulevard and makes just 22 stops.

Unlike the city's three other select bus service routes, riders will not pay before they board.
