All Aboard: Yellow Harriman Bus Starts Service Around Park

Posted on 29 June 2015 by Editor

The Harriman Yellow Shuttle Bus is another step toward making the Tuxedo/Sloatsburg corridor at gateway to Harriman State Park. The effort, led by Suzy Allman of MyHarriman, also partners with A Better Tuxedo and the Tuxedo Chamber of Commerce.

MyHarriman, joined by partners A Better Tuxedo and the Tuxedo Chamber of Commerce, have launched a new Harriman Yellow Shuttle Bus to take Harriman Park hikers deeper into the park.

All aboard — a big yellow bus is all set to take visitors to Harriman State Park for a ride deeper into the park.  Want to stop at Sebago Cabin Camp or the driveway to Baker Camp? No probelm. Want to hit the Long Path Access before lunchtime? Take a ride on the bus. 

Starting the Fourth of July weekend, the new Harriman Shuttle will leave from the Tuxedo Train Station and loop around Harriman State Park down past Reeves Meadow to Sloatsburg — and then loop back again, ending back at the Tuxedo Train Station at noon.

my_harriman_logo13The effort is a collaboration, led by Suzy Allman of MyHarriman and partners with A Better Tuxedo and the Tuxedo Chamber of Commerce — the Harriman Big Yellow Shuttle Bus rolls into service this holiday weekend.

Part of the continuing grassroots effort in the Tuxedo/Sloatsburg corridor to create trail-friendly programs and services that take advantage of Harriman State Park and Sterling Forest State Park, the shuttle bus will enable park visitors to get from the Tuxedo Train Station to any number more interior Harriman trailheads — for only $5 per person per ride.

Just click to look more closely at the new Harriman Yellow Bus route that will travel once a day on weekends from Tuxedo Train Station around Harriman State Park to Sloatsburg and back.

The 46-passenger yellow school bus, operated by First Student Bus Company, is bonded and insured and will run once a day, leaving the Tuxedo Train Station at 10:50 a.m. — giving park visitors on the 10:17 a.m. train from New York City, just enough time to wander through the Tuxedo Farmers’ Market on Saturday or purchase a park map or buy supplies in Tuxedo.

The Harriman Yellow Bus will loop around Harriman State Park past Reeves Meadow to Sloatsburg, stopping at Characters Restaurant and Bar, before making a return loop back past Reeves Meadow and around Harriman back to the Tuxedo Train Station

All bus passengers will be responsible for their own park exit strategy. Hikers can either hike back to the Tuxedo or Sloatsburg Train Stations, hike to a bus stop, or spend the night in the park and catch the next morning’s Yellow Bus as it rolls through the park.

Each bus ride on the Harriman Yellow Bus costs $5 per person.

The bus will run depart the Tuxedo Train Station at 10:50 a.m., with a return time set for 12 p.m. at the Train Station — which involves the loop around the park to Sloatsburg and back.

This week’s day include Friday, July 3, Saturday, July 4, and Sunday, July 5.

Tickets should be purchased ahead of time guarantee a seat — or show up at the Train Station and try to catch a ride.

The whole effort is part of MyHarriman’s, the Tuxedo Chamber’s and A Better Tuxedo effort create a park friendly Tuxedo (and Sloatsburg). Make sure you pick up a trail map from the Trail Conference website, or download the digital map set from Avenza for your smartphone. There will also be a limited number of maps for sale on the bus.
