Saturday August 21: To the Rockaways by Rail and Bus

Recommended Posts

Saturday, August 21 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

TO THE ROCKAWAYS, BY RAIL AND BUS!

Adults: Non-members $45, Museum members $30. Children (5 - 17) Non-members $20, Museum members $15.

 

Includes New York Transit Museum admission. Reservations and advance payment highly recommended. 718.694.1867

 

Take in the summer seaside on our first ever Nostalgia train and bus trip! Meet at the Museum where our beloved cars will be ready and waiting for you to board. Then off to Rockaway Park on a spectacular ride over Jamaica Bay. Stroll to the local beach or, better yet, ride one of our vintage buses to Gateway National Park. You can spend all afternoon enjoying the beach, or take turns riding each different bus!

 

I'm also posting this in the Subway forum since it applies there too.

 

If you don't have tickets yet you can show up day of and get them. Check in starts at 9:30am. You can't ride the buses or trains without a ticket.

 

Subway equipment will be ALL EIGHT operational R1-9's. Bus equipment will be SEVEN vintage buses from 1949 to the mid 1980's, including for the first time the Grumman Flexible

I will be there and I can't wait! I've been looking forward to this since I got the info in the mail. This is going to be a memorable one so PLEASE come out and support the TM and take a ride on all of the equipment that they have! It's going to be a blast! :) :cool: :tup:

Now that I'm hearing the Grumman Flxible will be in service, this makes me want to go MORE! I really hope my mom pulls through with the $45 she promised me for this trip.

Can't make it unless I borrow money, too much personal issues.

Damn, I wish I could help. I just got the money a couple hours ago myself so yeah, I'm cash-strapped too :)

Sorry to sound like the bad guy but would it had been easier to post this event in off topic section instead off all over the boards here?:)

 

Hardly all over. It's a bus and subway trip, therefore it is in both the Bus and Subway sections of this forum.

 

Why post it in off topic when it's very much ON topic here at the NYC TRANSIT Forums???

Why? It's transit-related, not like the non transit related news threads that you bring up all the time.
