Re: Ideas for express bus from Long Island

Either 49 or 52 would probably work. There is a decent-sized crowd going from Dix Hills to the Park/Madison Avenue area between Grand Central and the high 50's in addition to downtown.

I think you will lose far more than 5 minutes by adding a stop at 36. If someone can drive to the P/R at 36, they can drive another 5-10 minutes and have faster and more frequent service from Mineola.

If I remember correctly, you can't get back onto the westbound HOV lane anywhere west of exit 39 so you'll sit in traffic many days. If you are in the HOV lane, most days you can average 50+ MPH until around the Clearview (where the LIE narrows to 3 lanes). From there, I can't help you estimate how long it would take to get to the tunnel, but it will be very slow.
