County to consider restoring Route C funding

Good news – the Dutchess County Legislature will be considering an amendment to the budget to restore the bus service on Route C beyond the TOPS supermarket.

Without this change, buses will cease to run north of TOPS at the end of March.

While I’ve been working with county, town and village officials to lobby for this over the past month, I know that the catalyst for this change was the fantastic turnout and the heartfelt and pained testimony at the public forum at Rhinebeck Town Hall in December.

I look forward to supporting this change. Thank you to the county’s Department of Public Works, Public Transit, and the new incoming administration for having an open mind (and ear) on this issue.
