I heard someone complaining that the price is 2.75 now. When I was in high school the price was more like $5. The service is a great bargain. Rain, shine, or snow they are operating everyday. There's also always a van available and they leave immediately after the seats have been filled.
The pickup stop in Chinatown is on the corner of Divison and Bowery by Confucius Plaza. The pickup and last stop in Flushing is across the street from Starbucks by Main Street.
