Welcome to the Connect Mid-Hudson Transit Study project website!
The Mid-Hudson Valley Transportation Management Area (MHVTMA) includes the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) in Orange, Dutchess, and Ulster Counties. The three MPOs are charged with leading a comprehensive approach to transportation planning in the region, with a special focus on congestion management and transit coordination. While this area is served by a network of rail lines, commuter bus routes, ferry service, and local bus routes, transit service is spread out among a large number of public and private transportation providers with limited comprehensive planning or direction. This study will identify opportunities to streamline existing services by reducing overlaps and increasing coordination between providers.
