The company said the service begins Monday, with pickup and unloading sites in Berks.
Berks County, PA
Klein Transportation is ready to roll out to New York City on Monday from Douglassville, Muhlenberg Township and Kutztown.
Douglassville-based family-owned company, which announced the service late on Saturday night, said it hopes to fill the site again after Bieber Transportation Group canceled all its races Friday.
Klein has partnered with New York based OurBus to provide service along the route previously offered by Bieber.
OurBus offers scheduled flights and scheduled flights, serving cities in the Middle Atlantic and Florida.
Klein / OurBus will also stop at Lehigh Valley, Wescoeville and Hellertown.
The company offers two trips daily in each direction on weekdays. Going to commuters and others with business in New York, the trails will depart Berks County locations in the morning and return in the evening.
Two more staggered tours in each direction are offered daily on weekends.
Passengers will be turned off at 26 and Park avenues and picked up at 26 and Madison avenues, both on the eastern side of Manhattan.
OurBus said on its Facebook page that the company hopes to retrieve Bieber's stop near the port authority, but
OurBus said it also works in conjunction with A1
Tickets to Philadelphia should be available on OurBus website commuter routes since Sunday evening.
Start up Clydesdale Bus Co. announced on social media Saturday that it will focus on service from Berks and Lehigh counties to Philadelphia.
"For the immediate need, we divert our service to Philadelphia," said Derek Sheldon, a company principal, on a Sunday telephone interview. "It's a total blackout of service to Philadelphia and I want to rectify the situation as soon as possible."
Sheldon of Exeter Township said limited daily service will begin February 18 by running from Kutztown to Philadelphia and includes stops in the Reading area and Norristown.
A separate route will run through Quakertown, Bethlehem and Allentown to Philadelphia and back.
The company is looking for feedback at necessary times and departures to better serve those who need service.
Pick-up and departure locations will be decided at the end of the week, Sheldon said, but probably will be somewhere in Exeter Township, Wyomissing, or both.
Clydesdale will also offer a new direct shuttle service to and from the Reading area and Philadelphia International Airport.
"We are trying to address these micromarkets," Sheldon said.
The company is still on track to deliver buses from Berks County to New York, he said, and scheduled shuttle buses from Berks to Lancaster and Harrisburg by the end of March.
Kutztown-based Bieber underwent a series of economic and logistical setbacks that began in July.
Having collected $ 214,000 in unpaid user fees and other charges, the Company lost its place on the Port of New York and the New Jersey Bus Terminal in July.
Bieber continued the service and dropped off riders in some New York places. During that time, the company issued more than 200 parking tickets and related fines of over $ 90,000, although it was allegedly $ 8,000 of these fines were declined.
Bieber could not be reached for comment Sunday.
