Update: January 27, 2015 -- Dutchess County Public Transit is now running on or close to schedule.
We're excited to announce - Map Your Public Transit Route - our new map-based interactive Bus schedules application! We believe that this will greatly improve the searching, viewing and readability of the Dutchess County Public Transit Bus routes for the thousands of new and existing Bus riders as well as give riders a means for getting up-to-date information about the status of any and all bus routes and the operation of the Divison of Public Transit Bus System.
