VERNON, New Jersey ??” Mountain Creek is pleased to announce that NJ Transit will again provide weekend and holiday bus service from the New York Port Authority to the ski resort between December 26, 2005 and March 5, 2006.

The bus service is an extension of the current 194 bus route from Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City, which also includes a stop at the Willowbrook Mall Park & Ride in Wayne, NJ before arriving at Mountain Creek, allowing New Jersey families to also benefit from this schedule. Service will operate on weekends and holidays including Martin Luther King Day and President’s Day, and daily during the Christmas holidays, between December 26 and January 2.

One way rates to/from New York City are $9.25 for adults, $4.25 for children/seniors, and from the Willowbrook Mall the adult fare is $3.65 and children/seniors pay $1.65.

“We’re happy to be able to again offer this service to our customers from New York City and north Jersey,” said Jorgen Brich, Senior Manager of Sales at Mountain Creek. “We have an exciting season planned with lots of great events and offer incredible overnight lodging options, and this NJ Transit bus service will enable more people to enjoy all the resort has to offer.”

The bus will leave New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal at 7:30am, stop at Willowbrook Mall Park & Ride at 8:00am and reach Mountain Creek at 9:12am allowing for a full day on the slopes. The return trip will depart Mountain Creek at 4:30pm, stop at Willowbrook Mall Park & Ride at approximately 5:40pm and arrive back at the Port Authority Bus Terminal at 6:12pm.

With a valid NJ Transit yellow bus fare receipt (dated the same day only), adults will receive a $10.00 discount on a weekend lift ticket at Mountain Creek, and $5.00 off for youth/seniors, or $2 off a one-hour tubing session.
