Transit - ARC of Rockland
Transit and its advantage
We all know the drill: Wake up. Coffee. Sit in traffic. Repeat. Break the routine and take the stress out of your commute. Enjoy the ride on a train, bus or ferry. Or simplify your commute by biking or walking to work.
- Catch up on work, read a book, nap or relax.
- Get to know your neighbor, coworker, or that person you see on the bus every morning. You never know who you could meet on your commute!
- Avoid the cost of car ownership -- and the headache of maintaining your car -- when you take transit or bike or walk.
Starting my day with the subway and a walk instead of sitting in traffic has really improved my mood.
We can help you with
- Customized door-to-door itineraries.
- Access to our FREE Guaranteed Ride Program. We’ll give eligible candidates $300 a year in total ride credits* to use on a taxi, Lyft, or Uber ride to leave work in an emergency when you regularly take transit.

" Last summer, I had to drive. I felt way more tired even though my commute took less time. I had to focus on the road, I couldn’t work while I was commuting. Now, if I want to work or nap, I can take the bus or train. "
