Rockland works to transition to new bus service contract

NEW CITY – Rockland County will not terminate its current contract with Brega Transport Corporation until a viable replacement contractor is identified by Brega and approved by the county,” County Executive Edwin Day said Wednesday.

Just days ago, the county executive said he was terminating the contracts with Brega because the company’s owner, Richard Brega, is facing federal corruption charges related to contracts with Rockland BOCES.

The local suspension covers all contracts between the county and Brega, including the Department of Health’s pre-school and Early Intervention transportation contract, the Brega DOT Maintenance and  Automotive Repair contracts and the Brega Commercial Collision contract.

Rockland has five contracts with Brega Transport for the maintenance and operation of the TOR and TZx bus services.

“We will continue to work cooperatively with Brega on a contract assignment that will provide continuity of service for riders and protect Brega’s current employees wherever possible,” Day said.

Close to 10,000 people in Rockland use the bus service daily.
