Downtown Connection Rolls Out New Fleet

Connection Bus

Now, you can ride around Lower Manhattan in style– the Downtown Alliance’s brand new fleet of seven Downtown Connection buses has hit the streets! The new fleet features periphery seating for 25 passengers.

The Downtown Connection bus route connects the South Street Seaport with Battery Park City and the Murray-Warren street shopping district, making stops from river to river. Ridership has grown every year since the service began, and is now just shy of 900,000 annual rides. It’s the most convenient way to explore Lower Manhattan’s businesses, shops, restaurants and attractions. And, since it’s free, you can hop on and off as often as you’d like.

Service is provided seven days a week (except Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) between 10 AM and 7:30 PM. Traffic permitting, buses arrive every 10 minutes during the week and every 15 minutes on the weekend. Ten NextBus countdown clocks and GPS on every bus let riders track the position of shuttle buses.
