I LOVE NEW YORK has partnered with Hampton Jitney to provide tourists with a convenient and affordable transport tool to help them travel throughout the state.

The recently launched I LOVE NEW YORK Bus is a useful resource to tourists in New York, serving as a connection from Manhattan and Long Island to popular destinations across the state. The bus's city departure location, 44th Street and Third Avenue, is conveniently located near major rail stations Grand Central and Pennsylvania Station.

The service is an initiative to encourage tourists to travel beyond the confines of the city and explore the luxuries the rest of the state has to offer.

Operated by Hampton Jitney, destinations range from the southern tip of the state to the Adirondacks, the northernmost mountains, with a variety of stops in-between including wintry resorts, wineries and breweries, seasonal events and festivals.

During winter 2015, skiers and snowboarders are being offered a range of mountain resort packages. Options include single day and overnight trips to more than 13 different mountains, including Hunter Mountain in the Hudson Valley and Whiteface Mountain in the Adirondacks. Packages feature lift tickets, rentals, lessons and overnight accommodation in addition to transport.

From spring, art and culture enthusiasts can enjoy a series of tastings, tours and scenic excursions. The motley destination list includes award-winning Millbrook Winery, historic Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Home Library and Museum and adventure-filled Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, among others.

In addition to deluxe round-trip transport, all trips include a selected ticket package, an ear band, light snacks, beverages and an on board escort.

Trip details and full itineraries can be viewed at www.iloveny.com/travel-tools/bus and tickets can be purchased at www.reservations.hamptonjitney.com from $89.
