Question Need bus/van info

Hello,
Ladies, I need your help. I need to get to Midstate for Saturday evening visits. I'm coming from Long Island but will go where I have to. From what I told only Flamboyant services that time, but the numbers I have for them are disconnected. If anyone has another number or company I would really appreciate it. Thanks

I rode with Happy Journey to Hale Creek every other week for 6 months and never had a problem. You dont have to bring cash with you to the stop because they take credit card payments or you can go to HSBC Bank and deposit the money in thier checking account. Yes they do keep in contact by text after you rode with them the first time, but I think its great, no misunderstandings - you got it in writing. They are the only Van service that goes directly to the facility and we always got there early. Once I called to late and they were full so I took Amtrack, it cost me $150 and I got to Amsterdam, the closest stop, at noon because the train only goes there twice on week-ends, I had to than call a taxi to take me and pick me up from Hale Creek, $15 each way, after my 3 hour visit, all the time left, the taxi took me back to the small station and I waited there for 2 more hours for the next train back to Manhattan. It was very expensive compared to Happy Journeys $50 when I was going. Greyhound also goes up there but than you have to take a taxi to get to the facility from the Greyhound stop. As far as them being rude, you usually get what you give, the lady I spoke to was very pleasant and the driver was a good driver and didn't say much, it was always the same driver. After my first visit I would call and leave a message I wanted to go, than I would make my deposit, call and leave the reference #, and I would get a text that I was on the list and all set to go on the visit, simple and safe. And there was always a seat for me. Thats why I was surprised anyone had a problem with Happy Journey but I guess it could happen.

Default Ride to Onieda

Girl, Make sure the one who is doing the driving gets 8 hours of sleep the night before, otherwise you will be driven in a ditch as I experienced 3 years ago. Its a 5 hour ride.

Smile Hale Creek Transport

Since 1989, we have been providing transportation to Hale Creek. Every six months there is a new group of inmates coming to Hale Creek and old ones leaving. The prices to Hale Creek has remain the same for more than ten years (10). On a good week-end we move fifteen passengers. These days we are moving eight passengers on saturdays and four on Sundays. The price to travel to Hale Creek on saturday is $50.00 for adults and kids ages 4 thru 9 $30.00. The Sundays' trip is $60.00 for adults and kids 4-9 the same $30.00.

The reason for this price difference on Sunday is, we provide services to another facility an hour away from Hale Creek, and this is what makes it possible for us to get people to Hale Creek on Sundays. With the taxis' who gets $20.00 per passengers makes it possible for everyone to get to their facility on time. Please note, the the people for Hale Creek cannot carry the cost of the trip themselves on Sundays.

Over the years we have seen carriers come to Hale Creek and ended up leaving, why?.. Not enough business to sustain themselves at Hale Creek.

Some of the girls who come to Hale Creek, comes with attittude, we don't have time for this, its hard enough to provide the service to Hale Creek, especially on Sundays.

Now, some complain about our texting, and they say its unprofessional, are they in the real world? Let me explain...... for the first timers, they are introduce to our way of operation, once this is achieve we find that texting is more reliable than passing information on thru the phone. We also accept credit cards is that unprofessional?

Its unfortunate that some choose to smeer us by putting out false information, we have been serving the public for over 20 years with no problems.

Mr. William Mayia, founder and Ceo.

I met a guy on craigslist who will beat their price too, if we can get a few people together, but if I could find somebody who drives who is the visitor, I will pay for the gas and expenses. If we work together maybe we can get this going on. please hit me up. ms_beabout at yahoo.... thank you
Nothing sketchy about them, call 411 ask for Happy Journey they are listed.visit they web-sight @ happyjourneylimo you will get the full picture.they also accept all major credit card, anything sketchy about that?

We can give you a number of references of many of our costomers thats happy with the services we are providing. we will begin posting pictures on our page of many of our happy costomer riding on the Happy Journey Van!

what time will we get to Hale Creek? becourse, the Happy Journey Van! always get there @ 8.00 am! sharp. will you get enougth sleep before driving? Do you expect for me to help you drive? becourse I can't, I dont drive.His your car in good shape to make the trip up there? if you breakdown do you expect for me to help you with the expences? and most of all do you have the required Insurance on your vihicle to carry extra passengers in case of an accident? If you change your mind about driving here is the # you can call 718-856-6692 or 973-667-9899 you will get alot of sleep on the way-up there. This will help you to keeping your eyes open on the visit. it will pay off @ the end of the trip Mr. Happy! your Service provider.

They charge $60.00 on Sunday and 50.00 on saturday and Im only 3 1/2 hours away from there. Why pay 60.00 to go there when i was paying 60.00 to go see my husband in Gowanda and thats 7 1/2 hours away. Im going this weekend and if I have to rent a car I just will at least I will be in my own space. I haven't seen my husband since April.
To answer, your question, the prices that we charge as nothing to do with how far the place is.Rider- ship to Hale Creek is very small, 5 to 7 passengers on any giving weekend,thats why no one else goes to Hale Creek, once A carrier gets there, they find that they can cover the cost of getting to that Facility with five people. Soo, if you dont know what you are talking about feel free to asked.We ourself find it hard, providing service to Hale Creek. if you choose to rent a car, good for you, just keep your eyes open on the return home after your visit.

Its nice for you to explain how your business is ran, but I made the comment because of what I was told by one of your passengers. Its not that I'm trying to put your company down, its just an opinion that I stated. Me personally, wouldn't really care how your business was operated because I never rode with your company before. I was just trying to get some info for a friend, because she was trying to get to the facility but the ride up there was canceled. But anyway, good luck with your company, and I wish you guys the best.
