Metro-North's Guaranteed Ride Home Program - You know how it is--sometimes you're working late at the office, or staying late with friends after work, or you may have to rush home midday because of an emergency. Well, if you are or if you do, you no longer have to worry about getting home thanks to Metro North's GUARANTEED RIDE HOME PROGRAM.

For connections to the Poughkeepsie Train Station and Poughkeepsie - Main and Market St. from Ulster County, please visit the Ulster County Area Transit (UCAT) website and look for information regarding the Ulster-Poughkeepsie LINK, or call (845) 340-3333.
