One thought on “MTA Changes in Effect for Battery Park City

  1. What bus/subway I take from Port Authority to Statue of Liberty cruise boarding point.
    The transport maps legends are confusing with insufficient explanation. What does 1 in red circle mean. What does M20 mean, is that a route.
    Which bus do I take and how much do I pay
