MTA New York City Bus #4017 on the S76 route in New Dorp.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) operates a number of bus routes in Staten Island, New York, United States. Some of them are the direct descendants of streetcar lines (see list of streetcar lines in Staten Island). Most of the routes run to the St. George Ferry Terminal of the Staten Island Ferry. At least one other route is operated by a private company.[citation needed]

This table gives details for the routes prefixed with "S" - in other words, those considered to run primarily in Staten Island by the MTA. For details on routes with other prefixes, see the following articles:

Bus route history[edit]

Except for the S61, all current Staten Island bus routes originally had different designations before they were renumbered by service patterns, as follows:

  • S4x: North Shore services
  • S5x: North-south cross-island services
  • S6x: Victory Boulevard services
  • S7x: South Shore services
  • S8x & S9x: Limited-stop versions of their respective local routes ending in the same number. (Ex: S62/S92, S48/S98). The S81, S84, and S86 are limited-stop versions of the S51, S74, and S76 respectively, while the S91, S94, and S96 are limited-stop versions of the S61, S44, and S46 respectively.

Old and new routes are given below, along with discontinued service patterns. In addition, prior to the late 1980s, routes were designated with R (for Richmond County) instead of S. The R designation is shown in the "Old Route" section.
