POUGHKEEPSIE – Dutchess County Public Transit is asking residents to share information about their past, present and future use of the county bus system as well as private transportation services. It is part of an ongoing transit study to develop ways to further enhance the transit system.
The county transit system has already made several improvements to the countywide system, including the new transit Bus Tracker smartphone app, which is available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, as well as designing and distributing a comprehensive Rider Guide to help residents navigate the system, purchasing three new buses, and plans to install up to 14 new accessible bus shelters to improve riders’ experience.
“We continue to seek new ways to improve our riders’ experience on Dutchess County Public Transit service,” said County Executive Marc Molinaro. “By better understanding how riders have and will use our services, we can better plan for improvements and innovations to ensure our system is as efficient and effective as possible, while meeting residents’ needs. I encourage everyone to take a few minutes to complete this survey and help us learn more about your experiences with our transit system before, during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic.”
