    Default Buses on the Belt Parkway?

    Hi, new member here, but a frequent visitor to NYC.

    This weekend I'll be on a bus trip to Nassau Coliseum to see the Islanders-Flyers game. On my past trips, by car, to the Mausoleum, we would take the Belt Parkway . I noticed that there are signs that say that commercial vehicles are banned from that roadway...my question is, does that include buses? I ask only because I would have to navigate a different route for the driver if he can't use the Belt. Any help would be appreciated.

    Yeah, on Long Island the choices for commercial drivers are very limited. In fact, I believe the Long Island Expressway (LIE) is the only highway that allows commercial vehicles like your bus. So, I guess your only option is to go through Staten Island, the Verrazano Bridge to the BQE and then onto the LIE. After that you would have to take the local roads to the Nassau Coliseum. It's a longer trip so leave a little bit earlier.

    That's what I had feared. We're leaving about 2 PM for a 7 PM start, so we should still be there in plenty of time. Thanks!
