The idea for the shuttle service was born of our quest to improve the customer experience here at Skydive Jersey.
Pittstown, NJ (PRWEB) April 14, 2014
Skydiving is definitely an adventure, but getting there doesn’t have to be. Skydive Jersey recognizes the challenge for NYC residents and tourists alike in getting to the facility, as public transportation is difficult to arrange for a 56 mile trip. Beginning April 19, Skydive Jersey will take the guesswork out of traveling with a brand new 15-passenger shuttle.
From NYC, passengers can get on the PATH transportation system along the Avenue of the Americas from the 33rd, 23rd, 14th, or 9th Street stations as well as from the World Trade Center station. If visitors have questions about navigating the public transportation system, Skydive Jersey staff members are available by phone to help. Skydivers can ride PATH to the Hoboken, NJ station just over the Hudson River, where a shuttle will pick them up right outside. New Jersey residents are also welcome to use the shuttle. If visitors can make it to the station, Skydive Jersey can pick them up.
The Skydive Jersey shuttle will depart from the Hoboken station at 10 am on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Passengers will need to reserve shuttle transportation in advance by phone through Skydive Jersey. Arrive at the Hoboken PATH station no later than 9:30 am to guarantee a timely departure. Shuttle service is intended as a convenience for customers, and at $30 round trip, it is slightly less expensive than public transportation. The shuttle will take visitors directly to the facility, eliminating extra time and confusion. Each tandem skydiving student can bring up to two spectators, provided they each pay the shuttle fee. Shuttle fees will be included in the total balance paid at the facility upon arrival.
Chuck Owen, CEO of Skydive Jersey, commented on the new initiative, “The idea for the shuttle service was born of our quest to improve the customer experience here at Skydive Jersey. Our team recognized the inherent transportation barriers that NYC tourists and residents experience when trying to make their first skydive. We took the necessary steps to remove those barriers and are now the first skydiving facility in the region to offer shuttle service for skydivers from the NYC area.”
