1. What are the largest convention centers in New York City?
The Javits Center on 11th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen is one of the biggest and busiest convention centers in the U.S. Javits Center North alone boasts 80,000 square feet of exhibit space, and the center has over 3 million total square feet of interior space.
Piers 92 and 94, which combine to make a waterfront meeting space on the Hudson River, make up the second-largest event facility in NYC.
2. Where can my charter bus pick up my group from LaGuardia or JFK?
JFK has two Cell Phone Lot waiting areas near each of the primary airport entrances–one off the Van Wyck Expressway and one off the JFK Expressway. Your bus driver will wait here until you’ve collected your baggage and made your way to the general pickup area at Arrivals.
LaGuardia in Queens also has a Cell Phone Lot waiting area just off of the airport on 94th street, between 23rd Avenue and Ditmars Boulevard. Your private bus rental will most likely be directed here to pick up your group.
3. Are there any restrictions on charter buses in NYC?
Lower Manhattan is particularly unfriendly to charter buses, so avoid taking your bus into this area and use the Subway or MTA bus system to get to Lower Manhattan instead.
Bus drivers can use NYC truck routes to get around and detour onto local bus routes when they get close to their destination. Check the New York City Traffic Rules before your visit for more information.
4. Where can I park a charter bus in NYC?
If you need to leave your bus to get into Lower Manhattan, the best parking areas are at Battery Park, the World Trade Center (with registration and a permit from the DOT), and the South Street Seaport.
For pickups and dropoffs elsewhere in the city, just make sure your bus isn’t near a “No Stopping Anytime” sign, isn’t blocking a public bus stop, and isn’t in a vehicle travel lane. Metered spots will have a 3-hour time limit. For more information, refer to NYC’s tour bus guidelines.
5. When should I take the Subway, bus, or ferry and when should I rely on my charter bus in NYC?
If you’re traveling in Lower Manhattan, we definitely recommend taking public transportation as the area doesn’t have a lot of space for charter buses to maneuver and park.
If you’re traveling further away from the city center, such as north to the Bronx or east to Queens or Staten Island, public transportation routes may be thinner so we recommend taking your charter bus to those areas.
Whether you’re filling up an itinerary for a private sightseeing tour or just looking for fun spots to spend time between business events or after a sporting event, you’ll find no shortage of places to go and things to see in NYC. There’s so much, in fact, that narrowing down your list of must-see New York attractions can be overwhelming.
Not to worry—we’ve put together some of the most popular destinations our passengers have visited in the Big Apple, based on interests. Some are hidden gems while others are timeless classics every visitor should see in their lifetime. We hope this guide will inspire you to plan an unforgettable trip for your fellow group members!
