NY: TOR Bus Service Improvements in Orangeburg and Haverstraw

July 11, 2013
New bus stop at Orangeburg Commons Super Stop & Shop, plus a modified route through Haverstraw Village on Riverside Avenue and Maple Avenue.

The Rockland County Department of Public Transportation has announced that TOR bus route No. 97 will serve recently opened Orangeburg Commons on Route 303 on every trip both northbound and southbound.

The bus waiting area within the Commons includes a bus shelter, benches, and an accessible sidewalk ramp to the Stop & Shop entrance. It is also adjacent to the Lowe’s Home Improvement Store entrance.

In Haverstraw Village, TOR No. 97 will now deliver bus service to Maple Avenue and Riverside Avenue, connecting with Route 9W at the south end of the village via the Short Clove Road bridge. Riverside Avenue is home to the Haverstraw-Ossining Commuter Ferry parking lot and Harbors at Haverstraw housing complex. TOR No. 97 will pass by those locations, providing pedestrian access via the entrance roads. Maple Avenue also includes apartment complexes and Haverstraw Village municipal buildings.

Pick up and drop off times may be a few minutes different from the current schedule.
