Let us be your host and designated driver to give you the comfort and reliable service you need so you can kick back and have a wonderful time.

We cater to large groups of 55 + and small groups and our company provides a number of services including but not limited to Private parties, Broadway shows, company outings, sip and paint events, airport drop off and pick up, nights out on the town and so much more.

We are offering the NYC trips at $15 one way and we’re aiming to make this happen by December 1st and our weekly passes to travel to NYC are $135!!! This price includes a 10% discount for booking for the week. Our bus stops on 39th and 9th and departs from MILFORD 5:00am and 5:30am the latest for commuters. Departs from the city 6:00pm with the bus loading at 5:30pm. We are taking reservations now; space is limited and with this rate are expected to sell out fast!!!

Pike County Chamber of Commerce Introduces New Pike County Visitors Map


Posted on February 28th, 2019
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to introduce a new and improved Pike County Visitors Guide map. This map could not have been created without the help from the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau and the amazing talent of James Levell

I am very excited to be able to present this new addition to the Pike County Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center said Jessica Black, Pike County Chamber of Commerce President. Our new Visitors Center at the Milford Community House has seen upwards of 700 visitors some months and we hand out hundreds of brochures promoting our County. This map has so much information encompassed in one piece.

We are pleased to showcase our Pike County Chamber membership in a directory broken down by category for easy reference; its businesses are named instead of trying to reference by numbers. It represents all of Pike County including the Lake Wallenpaupack area, Route 739 Corridor, and a large pull out of The Historic Village of Milford. This map checks all the boxes for us. The map includes notable history of Pike County, beautiful pictures, and information on the local waterfalls, "one of our top five questions that we get at the Visitors Center" stated Black.

Our new Pike County Map is available now at the Pike County Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center located at 201 Broad Street, inside the Milford Community House and will also be distributed to the various Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau locations and businesses throughout the region. Pick one up today! For more information on the Pike County Chamber of Commerce please call 1-570-296-8700 or visit www.pikechamber.com.
