Once again, MTA New York City Transit will be running a special bus for those wishing to attend to the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival in Queens. Here are the details via press release:
The annual Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival will be held in Flushing Meadows Park in Queens on Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14. And, similar to last year, MTA New York City Transit will operate a fare paid special event shuttle bus between Mets-Willets Point 7 subway station and the festival site in the park. Customers may also use the Q48 bus to Flushing Meadows Park and transfer to the special shuttle bus on Roosevelt Avenue.
Riders pay the regular fare ($2.25) with exact change or their MetroCard or may use their subway-to-bus or bus-to-bus MetroCard transfer option to board this special event bus. As the festival site is some distance from local bus and subway routes, these shuttle buses will operate non-stop between the Mets-Willets Point 7 subway station and the event site in Flushing Meadows Park about every 5 minutes from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. (Customers should note that Flushing-bound 7 service is express from Queensboro Plaza to Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue, stopping only at Woodside-61st Street this weekend.)
