Commute Route...

I've been trying to work out the most efficient (hopefully quickest) public transportation route from Port Authority to 83rd and East End Ave. This will be a regular commute, so the 15 dollar taxi ride is out of the question. So far, I see these as my basic options, but any suggestions or other routes would be appreciated!

- C train to 80th St then Bus across 80th - this bus actually goes all the way to East End, so walking is
almost zero.
- Shuttle to the 6. 6 to 86th, then walk back to 83rd and over 5(blocks). Lots of walking. Not appealing.
- E train to Lex, then switch to the 6 - same problems as above.
- Bus across 42nd to First Ave, then Bus (m15 I think) up first ave. Slow, but minimal walking right? Would drop me fairly close to my destination.


ETA: Its been suggested to try taking the A/C to 59th then the M31 across town and up York. This is currently looking like the easiest but perhaps not the quickest route.

Ah, if only I could! I've got a car, but between parking and tolls and gas it would be a nightmare... this is what the commute looks like.... not far in a straight line (ten miles?) but to drive (particularly over the George Washington bridge) would be nuts!
