It looks like Washington Apple Pi’s effort to shuttle Mac enthusiasts to next month’s Macworld Expo in New York City is going to be a success — the user group today announced that it will add a third bus to the first two that are already going.
The fourth annual trip to New York by this Washington D.C.-area Mac user group is shaping up to be the most popular yet, according to coordinator Jim Ritz. Ritz added that anyone who’s interested in hopping on the bus needs to sign up now.
It’s a one-day bus trip scheduled for Thursday, July 18, 2002 — the second day that Macworld Expo’s exhibit halls will be open. Buses leave early in the morning from various locations around the D.C. area and arrive at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Center at about 10 a.m. Buses then leave the Javits Center at about 6:15 pm, after the exhibit halls close, and stop for dinner about 1 1/2 hours later. Buses are expected to get back between midnight and 12:30 am on Friday morning.
Bus locations include:
Cost is $68 by check or $71 by credit card. That price includes roundtrip transportation, the Macworld Expo Exhibit Halls pass and a continental breakfast on the bus with juice (you’re on your own for java).
