Are there any busses to/from The Catskills and Lakewood? I seem to recall that Excellent Bus had a route, but I can’t find any info on them anymore.July 19, 2023 8:54 pm at 8:54 pm #2209725GadolhadorahParticipant
Probably cheaper and efficient to rent a car than wasting time bussing to Brooklyn or Monsey and then connecting to one of the multiple informal minivans that go to Monticello, Liberty et. al.July 20, 2023 8:55 am at 8:55 am #2209811@fakenewsParticipant
As far as I recall lakewood never had a formal run.
You could take an overpriced bus to Brooklyn and then a bus to the Catskills…July 20, 2023 8:58 am at 8:58 am #2209815mylogic37Participant
Yes Excellent bus is still running. They advertise in many Jewish weekly advertisement publications in the Catskills and in NYC. They do not have an online presence. Google them for their phone number and pretty sure they can email you the schedule or help you out.July 20, 2023 12:56 pm at 12:56 pm #2209832hujuParticipant
Busses are a form of affection. Buses are a form of transportation.July 20, 2023 2:26 pm at 2:26 pm #2209921yechiellParticipant
huju – you took the words out of my mindJuly 20, 2023 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #2209973ujmParticipant
huju knocks someone or another over the use of “busses” about every two or three years. But, in fact, the dictionary specifies that both buses and busses are acceptable and correct spellings of the same word. And, although, currently buses is by far the more common spelling, previously busses was more common as well as having been the preferred spelling of the word in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary until 1961.July 20, 2023 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #2210035☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

To ujm: …every 2 or 3 months, and glad to do it.July 26, 2023 11:06 am at 11:06 am #2211128Just Another YidParticipant
Now that the form of affection thing has been cleared up, maybe huju could just say that it’s a hilchos Shabbos matter that should have nothing to do with transportation to the CatskillsJuly 28, 2023 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #2211770Ctrl Alt DelParticipant
