Re: Proposed UCAT fare change

Ulster County Area Transit (UCAT) is proposing to change its fare structure as follows:


A proposed base ride rate which would take effect on April 01, 2016 and take the base fare of a ride on a UCAT bus from a zonal fare starting at $1.00 for the first zone and $0.25 for each additional zone to a straight fare of $1.50 for all fixed route rides within Ulster County

Half fare of $.075 for Seniors, Person with disabilities, Veterans, and SUNY Ulster Students within Ulster County

All fixed route service that crosses from Ulster County into an adjoining county to a straight fare of $2.00

All para-transit within ¾ mile of fixed route service to a straight fare of $3.00

All para-transit from ¾ mile to 1 ½ of fixed route service to a straight fare of $4.00

More information and details are available at UCAT headquarters, 1 Danny Circle, Kingston, NY 12401 
or by calling Robert DiBella at (845) 340-3335




 Commuting to class by riding a UCAT Bus has become cheaper and easier for SUNY Ulster students.  County Executive Mike Hein has implemented a commuting student discount on Ulster County Area Transit (UCAT) buses.  Starting in 2016 by simply showing their SUNY Ulster student ID, students will receive a 50% discount for their ride to or from any SUNY Ulster campus, including the main campus in Stone Ridge, the new Kingston Center or the Business Resource Center.   This fare discount continues the County Executive’s commitment to increasing access to higher education, as it was only three months ago that the conveniently located Kingston Center of SUNY Ulster opened in mid-town Kingston.
