A.      Chartered Bus:  We have chartered buses directly to the Annapolis rally from New York City leaving from 114 W 26th Street at 7:30 AM.  The New York City bus will have a pickup stop at the Clara Barton rest stop between Exits 1 and 2 on the NJ Turnpike (South) at approximately 9:15 AM for those driving from Philadelphia/New Jersey area that would like a ride down to Annapolis - please be parked and ready to hop on the bus at 9:15 AM.  There will also be a bus from Washington DC leaving from the College Park metro station at 11:00 AM.
