New Partnership Offers “Beacon Free Loop” Bus  for Residents and Visitors

Free service started August 22nd!

Beginning Wednesday, August 22nd, Dutchess County Public Transit’s Route G in the City of Beacon will be known as The Beacon Free Loop and will provide unlimited free rides for residents and visitors within the city’s limits as part of a new collaboration with the City of Beacon, BeaconArts, and Dutchess County. The goal of the collaboration is to spark new interest in the route, with an arts-focused rebranding of the bus and several bus shelters in the city. Recent changes to the route improve access between the Beacon train station and popular cultural and tourist destinations such as Dia:Beacon and the Mount Beacon Trailhead, as well as the business district within the city. The route operates Monday through Saturday, 6am to 9pm.

The Beacon Free Loop schedule is available online at dutchessny.gov/publictransit as well as on the Beacon Free Loop Facebook and Instagram pages.  Additional route information, rider alerts, real-time updates and more are available on Dutchess County Public Transit’s Dutchess Tracker app. For more information on BeaconArts, visit their website at beaconarts.org  #beaconfreeloop
