Bussing In Beacon

Dutchess County has a bus that meets northbound trains at the Beacon Train Station.  The bus stops at Dia:Beacon, then it proceeds along Main Street and then to the trailheads at Mount Beacon.  It repeats this route every 20 minutes or so.  Currently the fare for each ride is $1.75 but Dutchess County will be enabling an all-day ticket within the next few months.  This service is for Mondays – Saturdays.  On Sundays the Cold Spring Trolley travels to Beacon providing local Main Street shuttle service and connecting service between Beacon and Cold Spring.
