From The Daily Freeman:
KINGSTON, N.Y. — Across the region, transportation systems are beginning to alter the services they provide in the face of growing concerns — and shrinking demand — due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ulster County Area Transit (UCAT) has eliminated some routes and will likely reduce even more as the county grapples with a driver shortage, reduced demand and trying to find what County Executive Pat Ryan called the "right balance" between protecting public health and ensuring that those most dependent on public transportation have access to necessary services.
Likewise,Trailways has curtailed its services and beginning Friday, will reduce by half the number of passengers permitted on its buses nationwide, said Alexander Berardi, president of Trailways.
Amtrak has reduced service along the Northeast Corridor by 40 percent and has reduced its New York State service as well.
Metro-North, meanwhile, continues to operate a regular weekday schedule, although ticket agents won't accept cash at ticket windows or on trains.
