Stony Brook students can now access the new Sunday service on Suffolk County Transit’s 3D Route simply by showing their student ID.

To participate in a new transportation option, Stony Brook University students will only need to show their student ID to gain access to a new set of routes through the Suffolk County Transit. 

The new expansion came after the university made a partnership with Suffolk County offering services from the Stony Brook campus to Smith Haven Mall, Port Jefferson Village and points in between starting at 7:20 a.m. with the last campus pick up on Sundays is at 6:30 p.m.

“After successfully providing this public transportation option over the past 18-months, it seemed appropriate to work with Suffolk County to expand these services for our students on Sundays,” said James O’Connor, Director of Sustainability & Transportation Operations in a statement. 

“We must do everything we can to improve our transit infrastructure and provide options for our residents to travel throughout Suffolk County,” said County Executive Steve Bellone in a statement.  “The partnership between Suffolk County and Stony Brook University is beneficial to the students, the environment and the local business destinations in our area.  It’s a win-win for the whole community.”

Students have already begun to take advantage of the new routes.
