New Buses Expected in Rockland

According to Sue Cerra, the Rockland Transit Administrator, the county will most likely be receiving four used buses from the Albany bus system. Cerra stated that each bus has about 400,000 miles on them and for the cost of the tire leases, about $8,000, Rockland will be taking them to use as spares. The agreement is still bein finalized between Rockland officials and the owners of the Albany buses, but they are expected to arrive in Rockland by the end of the summer and will bring the number of buses in Transport of Rockland’s fleet up from 38 to 42 until next year when new buses costing $1.5 million will be delivered. Starting in 2016 the county is expected to replace seventeen TOR buses from 2004 and in 2017 Tappan Zee Express is expected to replace fifteen buses for the cost of $500,000 to $600,000 each.
