Connect Mid-Hudson Transit Study

What is Connect Mid-Hudson?

Orange, Dutchess, and Ulster Counties have partnered together to launch a new regional transit study called Connect Mid-Hudson.  The aim of the study is to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the existing regional transit network, and identify opportunities to improve regional connections.  Please visit for more information.

Public Outreach

Public participation is vital to the success of this study.  The Mid-Hudson Valley region is served by a number of transit providers, including bus, rail, and ferry operations. However, the services are spread among multiple public and private providers. The Connect Mid-Hudson study seeks to take a fresh look at the effectiveness of the existing regional transit network in meeting the mobility needs of residents and visitors of the three-county region.

Online Survey

We would like to better understand how you use transit service to travel around the region. Please take 5-10 minutes to fill out our online survey and tell us where and when you use regional transit service in the Mid-Hudson Valley. Whether you are a current transit rider, or just an interested citizen, you are encouraged to participate in the Connect Mid-Hudson Regional Transit Survey. 

Take survey here or access the survey through the following website:


In addition, members of the study team will be visiting major transit hubs and other key destinations throughout the three-county region to collect input on regional transit improvements from area commuters.
