Schoharie County Public Transportation is happy to announce that we are beginning to resume modified service.
For safety reasons, there are some required adjustments to our protocols:
• Mask or face coverings are required when riding transit buses and while waiting at bus stops.
• For social distancing purposes, seat availability is limited.
• Disinfecting wipes are available at the entry door for passenger use.
• Interior of buses are being ventilated.
Changes to our regular schedules are as follows:
• Route 2 began servicing our Cobleskill area with some modifications to the schedule last week.
Schedules are posted on our website (www.ridescpt.com), Facebook and available on the bus.
Route 2A is not operating at this time. No Saturday service available.
• Effective May 18th the Route 22 commuter service to downtown Albany re-opened; however, reservations are required to access this transportation at this time due to limited seating for social distancing.
• Route 5 also started operating this week with service to the outlying areas of Schoharie County.
Tuesday – Gilboa/Conesville/Blenheim, also on Tuesday – Sharon Springs/Carlisle/Seward and Thursday – Jefferson/Summit.
This route is by reservation only.
• Route 1 and Route 3 will start on Wednesday, May 20th and follow the regular schedule; however, service will stop at 3:40 for both routes.
No Saturday service available.
• Routes 20 and 23 are available for medical appointments only Monday, Wednesday and Friday. As always, reservations are required on these routes.
• Effective May 26th, office hours will be extended - 7:00 am to 4:30 pm.
Please understand that due to Health Department protocols, our seating is limited on our buses, and riders will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Seating is limited to no more than 5 riders at a time and social distancing will be enforced on our buses. We ask for your patience and understanding as we try to accommodate all passengers during this time.
In addition, we have put many disinfecting protocols into place to keep both the public and our staff as safe as possible and continue to monitor and make changes as needed to these protocols.
If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please feel free to contact the Schoharie County Public Transportation Office at 518-234-0952 (Monday through Friday). Please note that our office hours have been adjusted at this time to 7:00 am to 2:00 pm. Again, thank you for your continued support of this important public service to our community.
