First Day of Roosevelt Island School Bus Service to Lower Lab School A Great Success!

I was happy to learn that yesterday was the first day of school bus service from Roosevelt Island direct to the Lower Lab School. According to at least one parent and child I spoke with it was a great success. The child was particularly happy that there were no stops and even said it was FUN! If it is as much fun as the Scholastic Magic Bus, save a seat for me!

I don't know if anyone out there can answer any of these questions, but...

1. How long does it take?

2. Are there any other Manhattan schools that offer bus service to RI?

3. Is it ever a problem getting bus service from the Manhattan side of the tram to any school?

(My kid isn't in school yet, and we don't know if we want to stay on RI long-term.)

10:18am: 1) I don't really know. The bus leaves at 7:20am and gets the kids to school in time. 2) There are quite a few other buses picking up children on Roosevelt Island but I do not know what routes they take (UNIS is one of them). DOE regulation is that you need at least 11 children in order to create a route. 3) No. You can always take the tram and catch a bus on the other side of the river. That's what most kids do.
