You can now buy your bus tickets!  $27 Round Trip for Adults, $22 Round Trip for Students (there will be a rebate on the bus for everyone.)

We are currently selling tickets for 3 trains on Sunday morning.  If those fill up, then we will shift to selling seats on an earlier train.  Please buy your ticket today or as soon as possible.  It will greatly help us to accommodate everyone if you and others buy now. 
There are discount group fares available for stations between New Haven and Fairfield, but we don't have the capacity to coordinate purchases for other stations.  If you, or someone you know, would like to pursue group purchases for another station (e.g. Bridgeport?), we would try to help you get it set up.  Email ClimateTrain@irejn.org to let us know of your interest.

We have a route!! (and a time!!! PCM starts at 11:30 AM)
The Assembly point will likely be north of Columbus Circle and we will be marching east on 59th St, south on 6th Ave, west on 42nd St (which will pass Times Square), and then south on 11th Ave ending between 34th and 38th. 


Mark Twain once said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes very well.”  Just like the Civil Rights movement and the anti-Viet Nam war movement, the climate movement is on th
e same path.  You can help make it grow to global proportions!  You may have heard the buzz already about the largest climate march in US history but just in case you haven’t, here are the basics.  World leaders will be in New York City for a historic UN summit on climate change this September.  The Sierra Club, along with tens of thousands of passionate and dedicated allies, will flood the streets of NYC in a unified demonstration to act on climate!

Let's make The People's Climate March the largest-ever demonstration demandi
ng action on climate change!  Read more about it here. To change everything, we need everyone on board. Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us.  _______________________________________________________________________________________________
