50 Cents More to Hop On The Bus, Gus

Rockland County’s Department of Transportation plans to increase bus fares by 50 cents on the Tappan Zee Express (TZx) and Transport of Rockland (TOR). Increases are also planned for the T.R.I.P.S. paratransit buses, Clarkstown Mini Trans (CMT) and Spring Valley Jitney (SVJ) buses. With the exception of T.R.I.P.S, this is the first increase for these services since 2002. T.R.I.P.S. fares have not increased fares the service was introduced in 1978. The increases are planned for early 2009.

County transit officials will host two meetings next month where recent improvements will be presented and financial impacts of declining funds will be discussed. Citizens can comment on the proposed increases at the Palisades Center Adler Room on the fourth floor near the skating rink on December 17 from 2p-4p and 6p-8.

Comments can also be made in writing or in person to the Rockland County Department of Public Transportation, Building T, 50 Sanatorium Road, Pomona, NY 10970, by phone to 845-364-3333. The comment period closes on December 23.
