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 2021 Super Bowl-winning Tampa Bay Bucs, 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 waiting, boarding, riding, and exiting the bus. No eating or drinking on the bus. All players 12 and up eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine must show proof of at least one dose before boarding the bus for the first time.
B. Bus Transportation begins on Tuesday 9/7 and extends through Friday 11/19. Price is $595 for the Fall season, including 2 round trips per week from Manhattan to Randall's Island. Bus schedules just below. If you need the bus only once a week, a 1X per week $335 is also available, plus a special HS team only at $395. 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 Fall 2021 Weekday Practice Grid is below. Players training or riding only once a week can select the 1x option and select their practice day.
4:30 Practices - Select Bus #1
6:00 Practices - Select Bus #3
7:30 Practices - Select Bus #4
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.
