Hampton Jitney, Inc. is a privately owned bus company founded in 1974 and based in Southampton, NY. The company operates five separate bus lines throughout the Long Island and New York City area such as the South Fork to Montauk Line, South Fork to Westhampton Line, North Fork, Brooklyn and the Lower Manhattan line. Riders should expect limited cell phone use and refreshments on all buses.
Hampton Jitney requires travelers to have reservations which can be booked online. Jitney has two classes of service, the regular Jitney and the more expensive Ambassador, which provides extra-wide plush seats, extended legroom, wine with snacks and individual electric power outlets.
