We first would like to thank you for supporting our mission to support residents of Queens on their Marathon Sunday. This is our 6th time organizing transportation for Queens based runners for the TCS NYC Marathon. We have a tremendous relationship with our clients that have used our shuttle since 2013, and it’s our pleasure to see Marathoners of our neighborhoods come together and Board, Laugh, Sleep and join us on our way to Staten Island.
We would like to welcome two new neighborhoods to the mix for 2018, Forest Hills and Bayside! We will have a bus handle Western Queens stops, and another handle Eastern Queens. They will convene at the Queens Center Mall and set off for Staten Island. We pride ourselves on making this operation smoother year in and year out, but please read up on these notes before you sign up.
* Registration for the QDR TCS NYC Marathon Shuttle cannot be reimbursed or deferred.
* We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the departure time for your stop, we will NOT wait for any runners and once all confirmed runners board their stop, we will embark to the next one. This will ensure that we arrive to Fort Wadsworth on time.
* Selecting this shuttle does NOT get you baggage option for the Marathon. You are responsible for any personal property you bring.
* This shuttle is exclusively for TCS NYC Marathon runners and Queens Distance Runners Staff.
