Transportation to/from Manhattan and Brooklyn for Pierce Day Camp


Pride of Ownership - Pierce Country Day Camp’s Premium Transportation

Pierce Country Day Camp is the only camp that owns and operates 100% of our vehicles. We personally oversee all aspects of routing, vehicle maintenance and driver and bus counselor training. Our top priority is the safety of all of our campers. The Pierce family has been in the school bus business since 1945. Pierce Coach Lines Inc. and Willow Bus Service, both fully owned and operated by Pierce, have remained the school district carriers for the Port Washington, Carle Place and East Williston School Districts for over 50 years. We have tremendous pride in our impeccable safety record and highly efficient transportation operation.

Safe, Spirited Door-To-Door Transportation

The Pierce day begins with door-to door transportation on our comfortable, closely supervised buses. All of our vehicles are air-conditioned, GPS tracked by our office, equipped with two-way radios, cell phones and video monitors, and maintained to the highest standards. Each bus is driven by a professional NYS 19A certified school bus driver who works for the Pierce family year-round. Other camps use third party bus services, for-hire or camp parent drivers, or rented vehicles for their NYC buses…not at Pierce! In addition to the driver, each bus has a bus counselor on board to keep the ride fun and safe. Bus counselors are also equipped with bus games and cell phones to communicate with our families as necessary. Pierce Coach Line has also received the highest ranking in NY State as it relates to vehicle maintenance records from the NY State Department of Transportation.

Door-to-Door or Bus Stop? Two Locations? At Pierce, We Can Meet Your Needs

When deciding to send your child to camp outside the city, the daily transportation can be one of the most important parts of your decision. No camp has safer or faster transportation to NYC than Pierce. At Pierce we are fortunate to be the most popular day camp choice for NYC families, consequently each of our bus routes only covers an area of a few blocks. Coupled with the fact that we have multiple routes to access the city from Long Island (5 bridges/1 tunnel or in the case of Brooklyn no bridges or tunnels), our door-to-door set up is still faster and more efficient than any camp using bus stops. All that being said, some families would still prefer to walk to a location that is not their home in order to have an even shorter ride time for their camper which we are always happy to accommodate. Additionally we are able to accommodate playdates with children on different bus routes as well as provide regularly scheduled transportation to two locations like home and work if that is needed. One of the perks of owning and operating our own bus company is that all you have to do is call us and ask, and we can do it!
