NJ Transit River Line Trip
Saturday, April 24, 2004
The NY Division is pleased to announce a chartered bus trip to explore the route of the new NJ Transit River Line between Trenton and Camden on Saturday, April 24, 2004. The focus of this trip will be on the scenic photographic possibilities along the line, mainly in between the stations. We know that you members are able to ride the River Line on your own any time and take photos from the various stations. Utilizing a charter bus will allow us to concentrate on the many great photo opportunities that exist at other spots along the route. Nevertheless, you will have the opportunity in the afternoon to ride the Line back from Camden to Trenton. Lunch will be on your own at a location to be determined.
Our chartered bus will depart from the public city bus stop on 8th Avenue, just south of West 41st Street, just across the street from the front entrance of the Port Authority Bus Terminal. This is a different departure point than in the past, so please take notice. The bus will leave promptly at 8:00 am from this point (Stop #1). There will be an additional pickup point in Metropark at the bus stop area in front of the New Jersey Transit / Amtrak Metropark Station (Stop #2). The pickup at this Stop #2 will be at 8:45 AM Parking is available at $3.00 in the garage at the station. Please indicate below whether you will be boarding the bus at Stop #1 or #2.
For the return trip home, the charter bus will leave promptly at 5:00 pm from the Trenton Rail Station of the River Line, so you will need to arrive in Trenton no later than on the train scheduled to arrive at that station from Camden at 4:58 PM The bus will wait for that particular train if it is running late. Our estimated return time is 6:00–7:30 pm to Metropark and 6:30–8:00 pm to New York City. Please see the note on the other side about the departure times.
