Dutch Apple Riverboat Commute to Work Day
Wednesday, May 13, 2009
We Shall Commute Again!
The May 13 Dutch Apple Riverboat Commute to Work day was a success. We transported about 25 commuters to and from work during the day. And about 40 joy riders joined us for the evening cruise.
Be sure to check out some of the videos, photographs and articles about the cruise to see all the fun you missed.
We have decided our maiden voyage was successful enough to do it at least one more time this summer. (The date is To Be Announced.) Right now we are seeking corporate sponsors for the next commuter cruise. If you are interested in sponsoring the next riverboat commute to work, or if you are interested in catching the next commuter cruise, email Duncan at info@DuncanCrary.com or call 518-274-2723.
About this Event
Duncan Crary Communications has partnered with Dutch Apple Cruises to host a special day where Capital Region residents can commute to and from work in Albany or Troy (in either direction) on board the Dutch Apple.
In honor of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial, this event will recreate the 19th and early 20th Century experience of commuting between these two cities by Hudson River passenger boat.
Additional support for this event comes from the Hudson River Valley Greenway.
Passengers will receive complimentary Times Union newspapers, coffee and bagels on the morning cruise. The after-work cruise will feature live music by the Clarinet Marmalade (a trio of members from the Skip Parsons Riverboat Jazz Band), complimentary finger foods and a cash bar.
Trolley service will be available in Albany to shuttle passengers to select downtown locations, courtesy of The Albany Aqua Ducks & Trolleys.
The cruise will take approximately 40 minutes one way. Please board early.
Hook up with carpoolers, ask questions, and share your river commuting stories in our discussion forum.
