The Agawam Cultural Council sponsors "Plan Your Own Day" bus trips to New York City twice a year. Our next trip (two buses traveling in tandem) is scheduled for Saturday, November 14, 2015.
Buses each have restroom facilities and are usually Wi-Fi capable. Experience your choice of NYC activities such as museums, plays and other cultural events, street festivals, shopping, sight-seeing and more!
A member of the Cultural Council acts as leader on each bus, and is available to help with information and suggestions.
Buses make five scheduled stops in Manhattan:
- The Metropolitan Museum of Art/ Central Park
- Rockefeller Center/ Radio City
- Times Square area/ Broadway TKTS Booth
- 34th Street/ Macy's ... and,
- South Street/ Seaport (another TKTS booth nearby, and walking distance to Chinatown/ Little Italy, Wall Street/ Trinity Church, the Staten Island Ferry, and the Viet Nam and 9/11 Memorial sites).
Riders may elect to get off at any of the scheduled stops.
DEPARTURE TIMES/ LOCATIONS:
(... Once again, please note our NEW DEPARTURE TIME! ...)

We've worked hard to hold the current seat price at $35 per person. This is a very popular trip, so ticket requests should be mailed as early as possible.
