If you are looking to honor a passed loved one who served our country for Memorial Day, the LIRR is offering an escorted tour to Calverton National Cemetery.
This Escorted Tour includes round-trip train and bus transportation, as well as a stop at Kaufold Florist, affording visitors the opportunity to purchase flowers and coffee or tea. Once inside the cemetery, shuttle buses are available to take visitors to pre-selected sections, enabling them to reach their sites more quickly. We recommend customers pack a lunch, since eating facilities are not available on this tour.
The MTA Deal
$50.50 per adult ($42.25 per child, ages 5-11). The tour includes round-trip rail and bus transportation to and from Kaufold Florist and Calverton Cemetery on May 27, 2023.
