Sussex County Skylands Ride to reinstate full weekday public Connect

SUSSEX COUNTY, NJ –  Sussex County Skylands Ride remains committed to the well-being of its community and has placed top priority on transporting residents to vital services during the public health crisis in 2020.

In March 2020, the weekday public Connect was temporarily suspended and Skylands Ride began operating a demand-response only transportation model.

Modified Connect services resumed in November 2020. These changes were made to protect the health and safety of residents and staff and to ensure that residents could access critical and lifesustaining services, maintain employment and secure basic needs such as food and medicines.

In response to the increased demand in transportation requests, Sussex County Skylands Ride will resume the full weekday public Connect schedule effective Wednesday, February 1.

Skylands Ride continues to provide demand-response transportation services so residents can access employment, medical appointments, prescriptions, medical equipment, food, and other essential services.
