*** UNPLEASANT NOTICE TO POTENTIAL "UNACCOMPANIED MINORS" UNDER THE AGE OF 14 WHO WANT TO TAKE A BUS OR TRAIN BY THEMSELVES.***
I know, I know, it's ludicrous and nasty and completely ignores the fact that 99.9999999% of all damages to trains and buses are caused by people OVER the age of 14 ... but no matter what, you will need to contact Amtrak and/or Trailways directly to figure out what hoops you need to leap through in order to get to NYSMF.
We apologize for these travel companies' ridiculous, unnecessary, and just plain mean policies. But once you get yourself up here to NYSMF, we can all have a great time and laugh heartily over this transit issue -- because coming to NYSMF will be totally worth the Amtrak hassle!
