Bethlehem Transportation

    by steedappeal Written Jul 6, 2008

    I took Trans Bridge lines from the Port Authority in Manhattan to and from Bethlehem. The service and drving was professional. It is recommened to come at least a half hour before departure (or more) since seats are allocated on your place in the line. The seats are not overly spacious so don't expect any thing more than Greyhound-type seatings. There is a toilet on board, just in case. The bus makes multiple stops, especially on the later return trips where it makes the rounds at the major terminals at Newark Airport before heading back into New York City. If weather is overcast then bring an umbrella since the Bethlehem Bus Depot is NOT guaranteed to be open, especially on holidays and weekends. Most importantly, it is the SOUTH BETHLEHEM stop that is closest to the walking districts on the town. Lehigh University is only a few blocks away.

Bethlehem Warnings and Dangers

  • steedappeal's Profile Photo

    by steedappeal Written Jul 4, 2008

    It is recommended by locals not to walk around alone at night, especially across the bridges and around the South Side part of town. Bethlehem is not as dangerous, apparently, as Allentown or even Easton BUT there are robberies and gang-related activities that should put one on alert. Remember, this is an economically depressed city, still.

Bethlehem Off The Beaten Path

  • by merbrigit Written Jan 31, 2007

    The latte and espresso at this Southside cafe were great! It seemed the owner knew every customers name and their special coffee dring of choice. Great booths and view of Southside life. Unsual books to check out with authors I had never heard of before.
    This was a fun spot to check out. I think the address is: 501 E 4th st.

    Favorite thing: 1741 Gemeinhaus (community house). Interesting: flat dormers, steeply pitched roof, as in Central Europe, but wood clapboard construction
