There is an issue with AM buses with timing conflict and traffic concerns and adding pickup points.

The buses are extra comfort luxury coaches and will be very comfortable. As these are makingh multiple stops, the duration will be longer - ONE THING WE CAN ASCERTAIN - THE RIDE WILL BE JOYFUL AND COMFORTABLE. Murali and paskal will be contacting you with the timing.

09-09-2007, 02:03 PM
Can an additional bus-stop be planned at Somerville or Bridgewater, NJ ? Both these locations are on Interstate 287
Maybe the bus from Whippany can do that.

Anyway I have voted for Metropark.

ssarathk
09-09-2007, 02:09 PM
It would help if the bus-route for both the buses are available.. so atleast a few more stops could be requested. If the bus from Whippany can make addtional stops before Princeston near the Bridgewater/Somerville area especially if it plans to take the I-287 route to I-95
thanks.

come on tri-state this is the only realistic chance we have in the next couple of yrs to make a change. Hop on the bus (for a free ride) and make U'r presence felt in DC. There is very few excuses for people not to attend the rally (receipts, US open,...). Even though U have(not) received U'r receipts/EAD/AP, still U should come.. We can have lots of discussions (in-person) about who signed U'r packages, how U got ripped off for medical exam, etc. Imagine how much fun it will be -- it would certainly be better than the July receipt tracker:D

Based on our recent phone calls with fellow IV members, more and more people are getting interested in the rally and are planning to come for the rally. Don't wait until last minute, the seats will be gone. We need to finalized lots of things based on U'r vote.
We need to channel our resources into most important tasks in Washington,DC.

I have not yet voted as I am trying to get someone to drop me at Grand Central or Metropark.

laborchic
09-10-2007, 01:05 PM
By the way I just wanted to confirm that I am coming for sure from either of the pickup spots Grand Central or Metropark.

I think we should start advertising for a free one-day DC Tour atleast then we can have a increased head count :D just kidding...

mpadapa
09-10-2007, 01:41 PM
laborchic - please do cast U'r vote. This is the only way we can keep track of head count. Currently Whippany pickup point is not having lots of interest so we can work something thats convenient for everyone in north and central jersey.

If we didn't know, the bus ride is FREE, but ppl are encouraged to contribute towards the cost for the ride. Students for sure can ride it for FREE..

Please do cast U'r vote based on the choices available. We are using the # of votes to track the head count. If you didn't vote, then we cannot account U for the headcount. If there is issues with pick points do sound out on this thread and we will try to address it.

SEATS are limited and those voting on the poll will be given priority. We cannot decipher whatz in ppls mind unless they sound out on this thread.

tri-state folks those who expressed interest in the bus ride please participate in the poll. If U are not attending the rally due to some reason, U should be obligated to fill U'r slot on the bus by getting U'r friend or colleague.

IV invested lots of effort and money on this, it would be a pity if we cannot fill up the bus.

Can we call up the Tri state IV members and encourage them. Maybe they are not here seeing this thread (could be busy at RN tracking/or got their RN).

Also the door to door can be done with groups of 3-4 volunteers. Also we can have volunteers who are meeting people at restaurants, temple/church/mosque and not just creating awareness but confirming numbers to DC.

We could also have these volunteering groups working shifts in day/evening. It is just 1 week now.

Sachin and others:
I spoke to a friend in DC. He was suggesting not to take the car as it is going to be very difficult even if we are going to park in Fredericksburg. Hence I am thinking of going by bus.
Murali: Have you decided on pickup at Whippany? Otherwise, I will come to Metropark.
Friends near by Metropark: Can I park the car at any of your apartment complex? Please share your opinions.

This is exactly why we are asking ppl to use the bus. No hassle of parking..
Sep 18 is a working day and if U are planning to drive in peak hrs in the morning on the route from NY to DC. good luck.
Ppl have to be there at Washington Monument worst case by 10AM so that they can complete the registration and get ready for the rally.

Whippany pickup point is moved to Newark due to logistics issues. laborchic is working on finding a pickup point in Newark. We will soon communicate with U the volunteers and the exact pickup points..

Hello everyone,

I really really wanted to come but unfortunately am working on a very important deadline.

However my wife can come, but she would need a ride as she cannot travel alone.

Is anyone going with family to DC. If a family is travelling to DC from the Philadelphia area, (& coming back on the same day) she is VERY eager to come.

Please let me know. My email is neoparsee@gmail.com

Thanks
