When thousands of Jews – Lubavitchers and non-Lubavitchers alike – will come to New York to commemorate the 15th yartzeit of the Lubavitcher Rebbe on Thursday, Tammuz 3 – June 25, transportation will be an issue.
Police have notified that no parking or even standing will be permitted near the Francis Lewis Blvd. entrance of the Montefiore Cemetery in Cambria Heights in Queens.
“Since the summer vacation season didn’t start yet, we can expect much more people arriving,” Yossi Dunin, a Crown Heights resident who runs a bus service, told COLlive.
Dunin’s year-round daily yellow bus line from 770 Eastern Parkway to the Rebbe’s Ohel resting place is being upgraded next week to coach buses which will travel back and forth.
“These are fancy and comfortable buses with a washroom and air conditioner,” Dunin said.
Buses will be running throughout the day. “Whenever you come there will be a bus near 770 leaving as soon as it fills up, and same for picking up from the Ohel,” he says.
The price will be $10 for back and forth (any time), or $5 one-way.
