Dutchess County Public TransitMarist College, Dutchess Community College and the County Loop Bus System have developed a new bus route which would provide Marist and DCC students access to many businesses, restaurants, grocery stores as well as the train station and the Residence Inn on a regular basis. The bus will run daily Monday through Saturday with the earliest pick-up at 8:04 AM and the latest drop off at 10:47 PM This is part of Marist’s efforts to provide affordable transportation to students to vital local services (train station, grocery stores, galleria mall, etc) and to contribute to the College’s support of sustainability efforts.
This new route, identified as Route H will be available to all students for FREE by showing their Marist ID card. It also allows you to ride for free on any other county bus which you can access at the Poughkeepsie Transportation Hub located across from the Civic Center on Market Street.
The bus can be picked up on Fulton Street (the Starbucks side of the street) directly across from the road access to Beck Place. Drop off is at the same location on the Beck Place side of the street.
Special thanks to the Office of Safety and Security, The County Loop Bus System, members of Student Government for their input and support, and the Student Activities Office.
