Sussex County Skylands Ride acquires new bus

SUSSEX COUNTY, NJ – The County of Sussex Board of Commissioners is pleased to announce that a new bus has been added to the current Skylands Ride fleet.

“Safe, affordable transportation is vital to our aging population, and never has this been more in demand in Sussex County,” Commissioner Director Dawn Fantasia said. “The needs of our aging population remain a priority. From transporting seniors to medical appointments, to grocery stores and pharmacies: this is a critical service that fosters a connection to the community.”

The new bus was purchased using grant funds secured by the Sussex County Division of Senior Services through the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Aging Services. The new bus will replace an existing bus that will be retired due to age and high mileage.

Sussex County Skylands Ride continues to provide demand-response transportation services so our seniors, persons with disabilities and residents can access employment, medical appointments, prescriptions, medical equipment, food, and other essential services. To schedule your ride through the demand-response service or for more information about Skylands Ride, call 973-579-0480.
