Continuing with the theme of reminders about upcoming service cuts, MTA New York City Transit sent me this press release about the restructuring of the S42 & S52. Here are the complete details:

As part of the 2010 service reductions effective Sunday, June 27, 2010, S52 bus service will be rerouted in the St. George area of Staten Island and the S42 hours of service will be reduced.
