Bus tickets and Marching Logistics
Please purchase your bus ticket right away. If you wish to travel by public transit, keep your receipts and contact us. We’ll reimburse climate justice community members if that becomes possible.
Other groups are sponsoring buses departing from different points in New Jersey. Check here for a list of other buses.
The Climate Justice (CJ) community is heading up the front of the march. We will step off at 11:30am and march for about 2 hours to the Jacob Javits Convention Center on 11th Avenue and 34th Street. There will be workshops and information booths at the march end point to keep you occupied for the afternoon. Buses will pick up our groups around 4:30 to return home.
Purchase bus tickets here. If you need a free ticket just ask – no one will be turned away for financial reasons.
Food Bus tickets with food purchase includes 2 meals: a sandwich on arrival at our staging site for the march and a meal after the march ends, maybe fried chicken. Sorry, we are not able to accommodate special orders for vegetarian, Halal or Kosher food (although we will have turkey sandwiches) so if you have a special dietary need please bring your own food. We are coordinating with other march organizers to provide marchers with water.
