A New Way into New York City - Penn Station via Secaucus Junction

After an arduous task to discover the best solution to enter and depart NYC, we identified Secaucus Junction, Frank Lautenberg (SEC) located in Secaucus, NJ which uses the NJ Transit trains to provide direct service to Penn Station in midtown Manhattan. The NJ Transit trains run nearly 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and costs $4.25 for a one-way ticket. The total travel time on the NJ Transit trains is typically 9-15 minutes. Penn Station provides direct connecting access to buses and other subway lines via the 8th street line. It is not far from the PABT and in the heart of mid-town Manhattan. Penn Station is a far better hub than PABT, and a world-renowned passenger depot. We believe Penn Station via Secaucus is the best out of all the available options due to its continued shroud of protection from inclement weather directly into Manhattan, 24-hour accessibility, route availability, passenger accommodations, access to food and beverages, and reasonable passenger incurred cost.

The most challenging portion of this option is retooling our passengers to learn to navigate and work with the NJ trains. Clydesdale will continuously inform passengers via printed pamphlets on our buses, connecting train numbers and times on your itinerary, and direct verbal and written comprehensive information from the Coach Attendants aboard our buses, and within our customized app soon to be developed. We must learn to adapt - there is no going back to how we used to enter NYC. We do not believe this option is a disadvantage; we find it to be an advantage. We believe Penn Station to be a significant improvement to our passengers.

Creation of the Clydesdale Brand

Clydesdale Lines, LLC. founded in 2018 was a direct response to a community need. The Clydesdale brand is exclusively built in memory of Clyde W. Sheldon, a US WWII Navy Veteran who passed along with his wife Dorothy in a motor vehicle accident in 1995. Clyde Sheldon was Derek Sheldon's Grandfather and hero. He wanted to preserve the memory of the most exceptional man he ever knew.

When Mr. Sheldon was considering the brand for his new company, Derek had his Grandfather in mind. Since Clydesdale horses were the primary power source for livery and transportation needs prior to the industrial revolution, it was only natural to associate the distinctive attributes of the Clydesdale horse and develop the honorarium for his Grandfather.

Our motto, "Miles to Go Before We Sleep..." is derived from the last line of the Robert Frost poem, "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening" which clearly parallels our company mission in the last stanza, "The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep. We have many promises to keep, and our mission never is finished as Frost illustrated in the poem.
