Service area

UCAT provides service primarily in the corridors of the major state and U.S. highways traversing Ulster County, utilizing mostly small buses as shown to the right to service primarily the Route 209, Route 28, Route 32, and Route 299 corridors. Service is also provided out of the county to Poughkeepsie[2] and Newburgh for connections with Metro-North Railroad at Poughkeepsie, and Short Line Bus in Newburgh and Ellenville.[3] Within Ulster County, connections are available to Trailways of New York inter-city and commuter services to both New York City and Albany.[4][5]


The full route is given except for branching. Some trips may not serve the entire route. In addition, service may deviate up to 3/4 mile from the regular route except where noted.

In 2010, the routes were given names (previously, routes were identified by destination only). Those are also denoted in the table below.
