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.

Yep, I agree about busses being iffy... but I've always preferred to see where I'm going though, so the slower ride can be an ok trade off. I used to live on 1st and 33rd (NYU Med Center housing) and rode the M15 up to 72nd every day. Not the fastest ride, but taking the Limited was better... although like you, I was taking that ride over ten years ago so things may have changed.

But (as I posted below,) someone over at the NewYorkers community suggested a pretty decent sounding alternative - A/C to 59th then the M31 across town and up York.
