Rockland Coach Fare Increase

According to officials, due to rising fuel costs, prices for the Rockland Coach buses are going to increase once again this year. Starting Thursday May 1 fares will go up five percent for the company’s many lines that run Manhattan, which provide service to thousands of Rockland County residents, and vary in price from $3.00 to $3.80. Seniors will still receive a reduced fare. According to the company they will also be removing the 11C, 14K, and 20/84 routes, which serve local New Jersey areas, and go to the George Washington Bridge bus station but are losing money. The Rockland County Department of Transportation is attempting to work a deal with New Jersey Transit to take on the three routes. Dennis Rocco, Rockland Coach’s General Manager, stated that this will not affect the number 9A route to the George Washington Bridge station or any lines running to the Port Authority. The price of a twenty ticket book from New City will be rising $8.70, making it $183.15.
