A. We will be using Academy Bus for club transportation.
Academy is the charter company of choice for numerous professional and collegiate athletic teams, including the NY Mets, and Columbia University.
Academy Buses run under stringent Covid 19-protocols, including hospital grade Merv 14-15 filters and air exchange rates between 35 and 60 times per hour. Academy Bus cleaning video is here. Buses and drivers are assigned to ONLY Manhattan SC routes each day.
Risk assessed MSC coaches and/or chaperones accompany every bus, complete with rosters of players registered for the bus. Outstanding conduct is expected both on the bus as well at the field. MASKS are required at all times while riding the bus. No eating or drinking on the bus.
B. Bus Transportation begins on Monday, March 21, and extends through Friday, June 17. The price is $660 for the 13 week Spring season, including 2 round trips per week from Manhattan to Randall's Island. Bus schedules are below. If you need the bus only once a week, a 1X per week @ $360 is also available Capacity is limited, so I encourage you to sign up AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE to secure a seat. We can only contract buses when we have sufficient ridership and reserve the right to cancel any route that does not meet minimums.
The link to the Spring 2022 Weekday Practice Grid is below. Players training or riding only once a week can select the 1x option and select a practice day.
4:30 Practices - Select Bus #1
6:00 Practices - Select Bus #2 '50s/'60's Fields
6:00 Practices - Select Bus #3 70's Fields

If your team practices on split sessions say 6:00 PM one day and 7:30 PM another - choose either option (Bus #3 or Bus #4 ), and we will take care of bus reservations on our side. Same with 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM, choose either option.
