“We are excited about the tremendous demand for our executive class service to New York and the need to add a third schedule” said Jim Jalbert, president of C&J. “There is clearly a need for an alternative service to that of the Boston air shuttle or Amtrak which provides direct service to New York City without the hassle of changing modes or travelling via Boston.” Jalbert also stated that this is the first of several exciting changes which the company shall introduce later this year.
