Everybody is invited on this trip.

The Long Island Bus Riders' Union is excited to announce it's first ever "Rate the Ride: Aaron's Adventure"!

Long Island Bus Riders' Union members will be traveling from Jamaica, Queens to both North and South forks of Long Island ONLY relying on the Nassau and Suffolk County buses! Some might wonder why anyone would want to make this trip and possibly get stranded. Our purpose is to demonstrate the importance of Long Island's public transportation system while bringing attention to the most common concerns and struggles that bus riders are facing, many of which include late or no-show buses.

The trip will begin on Wednesday, October 15th at the Jamaica Station and will end on at the East Hampton Long Island Railroad Station on Thursday, October 16th (that's right - TWO DAYS!). We will be live Tweeting, Facebooking and Blogging as we ride the bus and speak with other riders. Please visit the following links on the 15th and 16th to see how the ride is going!
