Route Modifications Update

DCC Students Ride FREE! 

  • Effective August 28, 2023, thru May 31, 2024, Dutchess Community College Students carrying a valid 2023/24 Student I.D. will be permitted to ride any of the regularly scheduled routes on Dutchess County Public Transportation for free. 

Seatbelts are available on almost all Dutchess County Public Transit (DCPT) buses.

  • DCPT believes seatbelts can prevent injuries and encourages their use while riding seated when the bus is in motion.
