For those staying in Manhattan, buses were available again today to take spectators and exhibitors to the Meadowlands specialties and back again. The Eukanuba-sponsored shuttle service was very popular throughout the weekend. Out-of-town guests and foreign visitors especially enjoyed the ability to get to the shows without having to navigate the New York City traffic. After three days of intense specialty competition, the door-to-door service provided the perfect way to ease back into Manhattan and get ready for Westminster.
