Monticello, NY – The Sullivan County Office for the Aging is pleased to announce that the County will be resuming a modified shopping bus schedule as of October 13.

The suggested contribution is $3 per round trip. Please dial 845-807-0244 to make a reservation at least 3 business days prior.”

•           Shopping runs will start at 7:30 a.m. instead of 8 a.m.

•           Riders will get an hour and a half to do their shopping.

•           The amount of allowed shopping bags is being increased from 5 to 8.

•           Shoppers will be limited to two runs per bus per day. A waitlist will be maintained for any last-minute cancellations and to provide priority for the next ride available. Please only make a reservation if you’re absolutely sure you will be able to keep it.
