Trying to get to New York for the meet from the Hampton & Southside, VA area.... we have an answer for you:

Ride in comfort and leave the driving to someone else.  A special bus for NBIN athletes, coaches and fans will leave Hampton and the Southside headed for New York.  Bus fare is only $55 per person round-trip.  Take $5.00 off if you pay in full by February 3rd.  Otherwise, a 50% deposit will be required to hold your seat. The bus will also travel between the meet hotel and the track once each day during the meet.  The bus will return to the Tidewater area after the meet.  Seats are going quickly- don't get left behind!

For more information please contact the NSSF Director of Transportation, Jacqué Kendall at 757-572-5857 or at  We're also holding a limited number of rooms for those who travel on this bus.
