Express Bus service from Long Island is a very good idea. If a route like the BxM4C can exist so can an Express Bus from Nassau County. However, to start I would not run routes as NIMBYkiller has proposed. I would first start with service to and from Western Nassau with a route from the Port Washington/Manhasset area to Manhattan since the Port Washington branch is single track and there probably will not be a second track added east of Great Neck. I would also add routes from Roslyn/Roslyn Heighs/Searingtown as well as from New Hyde Park and North New Hyde Park. Currently, there are riders from Western Nassau County (especially from these areas) who drive to the QM1, QM5, QM6, QM7, QM8, QM20, X68. But mostly to the QM7, QM8, and I would even say the X68.
