Question New York Transportation -2005-

My brother is in Moriah Shock and as far as I know, the only bus that goes there is Operation Prison Gap which is a piece of ---- service. My mom and his girl went this past sunday and they got them to the visit at 11am and they made them go back at 2pm. They missed out on 3 hours worth of visit time. They promised them a discount but only for the fact that they made them leave an hour early, not for their mistake of miscalculating time and getting there late.

Does anyone know of any other bus that goes to Moriah Shock??

Hi, I heard that F&M Bus service to Barehill, Upstate and Franklin now charges 75 bucks! I lost the number to them and I plan on going next month for the last time to take his coming home clothes. Has anyone heard about this?

Hello everyone,
This is the first time I am going to see my hubby since they sent him upstate. He is in Groveland CF. I am going to see him on Saturday 2/5/05. I am using Unity Bros. this time, but if anyone knows of a free service that goes there, it would be greatly appreciated since I am on a fixed income right now, and with 3 kids, I really can't afford the $50 to go more often than once every other month. I live in the Bronx, NY.

Default Important Transportation Information

Hello PTO NY Family,

There are 2 bus services I need to let everyone know about for your safety if you don't already know about them. There is Carl's Van Service and Island Transportation service. There was an article in a Pennsylvania newspaper about Carl's and how he falls asleep behind the wheel. I was trying to find the website with the article that someone told me about but was unsuccessful Then there is Island, the driver is driving without a license which we know is against the law. We all want to see our loved ones but we also want to have a safe trip there and home. If anyone can find the article about Carl's that would be great to read.

Hope everyone has a safe trip on there next vist.

Peace....I travel to Sing Sing and although I drive, my sense of directions is horrible. So I keep it simple and take the Metro North line in the Bronx. The ride is short and comfortable. Taxis are always there at the stop to take those of us to Sing Sing. That cost is one dollar. Prior to Sing Sing, my Beloved was housed at Otisville. For those visits I traveled via Manny Bus Service which picked us at a location (Hostos Community College) in the Bronx. That trip was 30.00 roundtrip. If I had to choose, I rather travel to Otisville...like that prison far better than Sing Sing. Blessings...

Default What transportation Service do you use to go see your loved ones?

The first time I went to go see my baby I used, MAnny's. They didn't make any stops and there wasn't any heat. The last two times I used Flamboyant which was such a drastic change. They made several stops and made it to mid-state on time.

So a thumbs up to flamboyant

thumbs down to manny's

Peace....Sorry to hear that you had bad experiences with Manny...I used his service many times while traveling to Otisville; had no issues...the rides were comfortable. None the less I am pleased that you found a satisifying service. Blessings...

Default Bad experience turned good!

I also used Manny's when my boo was in Otisville and he was very reliable, we were always on time and the bus was always empty which was great. Now that he is in Wallkill I use Rosie's I have no complaints but the first time I went with her was total disaster I was told that I would be pick-up at 4:30 I didn't get picked up til 9:30 I was upset hungry you name it. By the time I got to Wallkill it was 12 noon and by the time I turned around visiting hours were over. But it was cool the next time she compensated me on a discount.

Default Barehill Bus info

Tomorrow my man is released, he thought he was going to be taken to Platsburgh to catch the bus to NYC but he was told by an inmate that a bus comes to the jail and goes to NYC he does not know the name of that bus. I'm suppose to pick him up in NYC but it's confusing. Anyone know anything about this?
