Schedule: PART operates a “flag” system. The bus will serve riders anywhere along the route, boarding or departing. Locations on the schedule are time and reference points and are not the only places buses will stop. Riders should “flag” the bus to be picked up and should be on the side of the road in which the bus will be travelling. Bus shelters are not bus stops – use the “flag” system. Times are approximate! The only stops in Putnam Plaza are at Top’s and the Dollar Store. Riders should be at bus top at least 5 minutes before scheduled time. Transit connections listed below.
Paratransit Service: Available by calling (845) 878-RIDE (7433), between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on the day preceding service. When Sundays and Holidays precede a day of service, a call may be made between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday or the day preceding the holiday. If Putnam Transit service is on snow routes, then Paratransit will be comparable to the snow route. Fare: $3.25 One-Way.
