Yankee Trails World Travel Announces ‘Cruise Express,’ Weekly Bus Service to New York City and Bayonne, N.J.

March 28, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Rensselaer, New York – Yankee Trails World Travel is pleased to announce that they have launched the ‘Cruise Express,’ making it easy and affordable for Tech Valley travelers to get to and from the Cruise Pier on the West Side of Manhattan and the Cape Liberty Pier in Bayonne, N.J.

Cruisers currently drive and pay for parking, take a train to Penn Station or take a public bus to Port Authority Bus Terminal. Yankee Trails will provide the service to Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Carnival, Holland America, and Norwegian (NCL) cruise ships. The ‘Cruise Express’ will offer door-to-door shuttle service between Yankee Trails World Travel’s corporate offices and the docked Cruise Ships.

“We recognized that there is challenge for regional travelers wishing to take a cruise from New York City and Bayonne. The options are very costly,” said Stephen Tobin, President of Yankee Trails World Travel. “The Cruise Express eliminates the need to park in Manhattan, or take a combination of bus, train and taxi. That’s door-to-door service for $40 one-way or $80 round trip.”

Yankee Trails was founded in 1957. In 1999, the company became Yankee Trails World Travel and has grown beyond a bus company into the Capital Region’s premier travel agency.

“Our philosophy is to remain innovative to meet the travel needs of our valued customers and to work to ensure that we are part of the solution for the Capital Region’s transportation challenges,” said Jeff Adams, Director of Marketing. “The Cruise Express was created out of this forward thinking.”

Yankee Trails World Travel has partnered with all of the leaders in the cruise industry, including Holland America, Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity. In addition to servicing their own travel agency clients, ‘Cruise Express’ transportation service is available to anyone desiring to utilize this shuttle.
