Long Island Getaways
Saturday: May 25 and November 9, 2019
This is not a sightseeing tour, but rather a rail/bus package that affords customers the opportunity to honor their loved ones who are interred at Calverton National Cemetery.
LIRR Representatives will board the train at Penn Station and/or Jamaica.
Please board the rear car of the Ronkonkoma Branch train and exit at Central Islip to board buses.
Prior to entering Calverton, we will be stopping at a florist to purchase flowers and coffee or tea. Once inside the cemetery, shuttle buses will provide transportation to pre-selected sections, enabling our customers to reach their sites more quickly.
We recommend customers pack a lunch, since eating facilities are not available.
Discount Package Includes:
- Discounted round-trip rail and bus transportation to/from the florist and cemetery
Children (5-11) $31.25
