A group of Crown Heights activists are launching a new bus service to the Ohel that will be geared towards families with children.
The new bus service will run on Thursdays, with the first trip leaving Crown Heights at 6:00 PM and the second trip leaving at 8:30 PM. The buses will wait by the Ohel for approximately 45 minutes and will return just after 2 hours after leaving.
Organizers told Anash.org that the new service is being launched specifically with Crown Heights families in mind, many who have children and are unable to make it at the other times offered.
The bus service will begin tonight, 25 Elul, September 2nd, and continue in following weeks, including Tzom Gedalya and Chol Hamoed, with a break for Yom Kippur. The price is subsidized, and will only be $5 per person.
“We are open for feedback and would like to hear from families what would be most convenient for them to allow the maximum number of families to utilize the service,” organizers said.
