Transit Integration Project FAQ

In 2013, the City of Poughkeepsie engaged a private consultant to examine the costs savings and greater efficiency achievable by integration. As a result, the City and County found the opportunity to provide routes which will only enable expanded service coverage, improved and increased frequencies in service spans during evenings and Sundays, and greater reliability of scheduled bus runs for City of Poughkeepsie residents.

Between the City of Poughkeepsie and Dutchess County, operating two public transit systems proves inefficient and costly for taxpayers. Inefficiencies such as the redundancies in routes and a lack of capacity to manage the transit system make the City of Poughkeepsie incapable of providing effective service.  County service can provide a higher level of service at a lower cost to residents. Therefore, the PTIP aims to attain transit services for City of Poughkeepsie residents in greater amounts and with greater efficiency, all at a lower cost to taxpayers by integrating their system with Dutchess County Transit.
