On this date in 1965 New York City Transit created its first express bus route the R8x. This route linked Staten Island with Downtown Brooklyn. The R8x was discontinued in the late 1980's.

Wouldn't this route have been known, after 1975-76, as X8? I know the 'R' prefix was attributable to Staten Island, pre-1975, being officially known as the Borough of Richmond . . .
