New bus service to NYC from Merrimack Valley

C&J Bus Lines has opened a new location in Tewksbury to offer non-stop, executive-class transportation to New York City. The bus company is offering a special rate of $39.95 for a one-way ticket now until June 15.

“Our non-stop, executive service from Tewksbury to New York provides a new option for convenient, comfortable travel,” said C&J President Jim Jalbert.

C&J will operate non-stop trips daily to New York City’s Port Authority from a new travel stop at the Holiday Inn Tewksbury-Andover at 4 Highwood Drive. Located in the heart of the Merrimack Valley at the junction of routes 93 and 495, C&J’s new location offers convenient travel to New York from Tewksbury, Andover, Lowell and Haverhill, as well as from Salem, N.H.

C&J has modified seating on its New York coaches to maximize comfort and leg room by reducing the total number of seats to just 30 from the industry standard of 55. The service includes free Wi-Fi, roomy leather seats, free bag checks, free parking in Tewksbury, complimentary snacks and beverages, as well as free video entertainment.

Passengers do need to make reservations ahead of time.

C&J will offer two daily round trips to New York City on Sunday through Friday and one round trip Saturday. Departures from Tewksbury on Monday through Friday are at 7:20 a.m. and 1:20 p.m. Weekend service from Tewksbury to New York will include departures at 7:20 a.m. on Saturday and 10:50 a.m. and 4:50 p.m. on Sunday.

Departures from New York City on Monday through Friday are at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., while weekend Northbound departures are scheduled for 8 a.m. on Saturday and noon and 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.
