I would like to remind residents of the availability of the Town’s bus service. The heart of our system is the blue/orange buses that run throughout our Town and Villages, as well as to locations throughout the County. Fares are more than modest at $2/person one way or $1/person one way for seniors over 60 years young. Service is provided within Warwick, as well as to doctor’s facilities in Wallkill. Our buses also can get you to Middletown, Monroe and Goshen. Reservations are required at least one day in advance by calling 986-2877 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you would like more information on this great service visit www.townofwarwick.org in the Warwick Dial-A-Bus department.
