*EDITOR’S NOTE: As of Thursday, July 26 North Fork Link service has been suspended.
North Fork Link, a luxury shuttle service, will offer complimentary transportation across the North Fork from July 7-August 25, 2018. Spearheaded by the North Fork Promotion Council, “The Link” will run on Saturdays between Riverhead and Greenport. Shuttles will pick up guests at Long Island Rail Road stations in Riverhead, Mattituck, and Greenport. Visitors can then hop on and off when they please at villages and other key attractions.
Shuttles will run every 30 to 45 minutes between Riverhead and Greenport from 11am-7pm. Real time information and location updates will be available via the North Fork Now app. Visitors will be taken to North Fork wineries, breweries, restaurants, shops, art galleries, and other points of interest at their own pace. Additional stops will include but are not limited to: Hotel Indigo, Downtown Riverhead/Aquarium/ Preston House, Laurel Lake Vineyards, Bedell Cellars, Cedar House on Sound B&B, and Harbes Family Farm.
The photos above highlight last Tuesday’s press preview tour with stops including Sang Lee Farms, North Fork Chocolate Company, Peconic Cellar Door, Liv Vodka, and Long Island Spirits.
The North Fork Link shuttles boast leather seats, WiFi, and power outlets. Drivers are employed by M&V Limousines, which also provides the vehicles. On-board “concierges” will assist passengers with their itineraries, answer questions, and provide information about the North Fork.
