Age Restrictions

No. People of all ages are allowed on the bus. All NJ state laws must be followed, including but not limited to, child seats and unaccompanied minors.

Very yes. Here is the pricing schedule for the kidlets and those under 18:

  • 16 and over allowed at regular price
  • 15 and under w/ responsible adult/guardian/parent at regular price
  • 3  years and under free

Arrivals + Departures

Meet us at the pick-up location 20 minutes before departure, smile nicely at the Trip Leader and hope someone overslept!

Sleep is essential but please arrive 15 minutes prior to your departure time to check in. Don’t miss the bus as it’s not waiting.

You enter the bus on a first come, first serve basis. Please bring ID for all ticket holders and either a printed or digital copy of your receipt. Do the future a favor and go digital.

Outside the Asbury Park Convention Hall – 1300 Ocean Ave.
Look for a large, school bus with a dope mural parked outside the Grove Street PATH station on Christopher Columbus Drive. We think we may stand out.

Bikes

Each school bus comes equipped with a bike rack that holds 2 bikes. You can add it to your order when purchasing online or upon arrival for departure. Please note that rack space is on a first come, first serve basis. $5 roundtrip per bike.

Cancellations

Jersey City Day Trippers will make the call in the event of inclimate weather. A cancellation notification will be sent out a minimum of 2 hours before departure. Full refunds are given due to inclement weather. If your destination is a theme park, such as Six Flags or Action Park, we will leave the decision up to the destination. If the park is open, the bus is going.

Cancellations must be made at least 48 hours before your departure time to receive a refund. Cancellations made within 48 hours of your departure time will receive no refund. I know, 1st world problems.

Carry-On

Surfboard space is available with notification and comfy beach chairs are available for rent. Ask our Trip Leader for more information.

Think airplanes. You must be able to keep it on your lap or under the seat for the duration of the trip. The aisle cannot be blocked.

Bottoms up BUT no glass is allowed. Now crack open that aluminum can and chill. Also, be a sport and take your trash with you.

Duration

The trip to Asbury Park takes about 60 minutes. Of course traffic, construction, weather and living in one of the densest states in the darn country can alter travel time.

Pets

Pets are not allowed on the bus with the exception of service animals. Advanced notice is required so we can save a comfortable seat for you and your furry friend. Proper paperwork for the service pet must be made available upon request. Email us at hello@jcdaytrippers.com with the subject line “Service Animal – (insert trip date & time)”

We reserve the right to turn away any rider who fails to provide the appropriate documentation and no refund will be issued.

Private Events

Our bus holds up to 40 adults comfortably. From weddings to birthdays to corporate outings and music festivals, Day Trippers offers a unique, nostalgic and charming way to travel with some seriously quirky perks. This is not your teacher’s school bus. Learn more by visiting the Private Events page.
