Starting this Monday & lasting through October 2nd, some bus service will be affected due to the United Nations General Assembly. Here are the complete details courtesy of a press release sent to me:
Due to the United Nations General Assembly meeting scheduled from September 21 through October 2, 2009, many streets throughout Manhattan and especially around the United Nations headquarters may be closed to traffic by the U.S. Secret Service and the New York City Police Department to allow motorcades of visiting dignitaries through.
As a result, we expect delays on all bus service operating in Manhattan. Delays on the following routes may be quite significant, and these buses may be detoured from their regular routes without notice:
M1, M2, M3, M4, M9, M15, M20, M27, M42, M50, M66, M72, M101, M102, M103, M104, X25 and X90
Customers are advised to avoid the east side of Manhattan during this period and to use the subway, where possible.
