The Sullivan County Visitors Association is pleased to announce the launch of the Eagle Express, a new shuttle service provided by Big V Enterprises, which will deliver passengers from New York City to the Upper Delaware River in the Sullivan County Catskills. The weekend round trips will begin on June 26th from Penn Station, and make four separate stops along the Delaware River.
The Eagle Express’s 21-passenger shuttle will receive passengers at New York City’s Penn Station on Friday afternoons for outbound trips, and return them to Penn Station on Sunday evenings. The first weekend of service will be June 26th and 28th, with additional service scheduled for July 3rd and 5th, July 10th and 12th, and July 17th and 19th.
Travelers will be able to relax throughout the duration of their ride, which connects with the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway for the majority of the route. The Friday evening leg includes stops in Lumberland, Barryville, and Narrowsburg in Sullivan County, with a final stop in Callicoon. On return trips, the shuttle departs Callicoon Sunday evening, and picks up riders in the same three towns before ultimately arriving back at Penn Station.
Although still in development, an online reservation system will be available at SCVA.net/eagleexpress for travelers’ convenience.
A one-way fare is $40, and riders are encouraged to book both legs of their travel at the same time to ensure seating on their return trip. Reservations must be made no later than the Tuesday prior to travel by 5 p.m. Luggage space is limited, and Eagle Express is unable to accommodate pets or recreational equipment (e.g., kayaks, bikes, etc.) at this time.
