Free Bus Program (http://www.ehow.com/list_7366293_bus-facilities-new-york-state.html)
The Department of Correctional Services has a variety of programs that assist family members with keeping in contact with their incarcerated loved one. It is also referred to as the free bus program. The free bus program provides family members and significant others with free transportation to various correction facilities once a month.

*Special thank you to Andrea & her knowledge of -some- Public Bus Information*

I just received this email from Alison Coleman from PFNY.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

It's the economy yanno...:questiontoanger:

Please see comments below on the free bus.
This was also posted on NYIF where you can connect with each other and carpool.

From: Alison Coleman
I just spoke with acting dep comm. Jacobson (female)--they have all been cut, permanently unless and until NYS is no longer in financial crisis. She said that DOT was making it much harder to run the buses--because of accidents, DOT had tightened up on rules. 3 bus companies backed out of contracts with DOCS

I just heard from Ministerial Services (DOCS) that the free buses used by inmate families for visits to the prisons are being cancelled. The Chaplains have just been notified.

Luckily, because of the graciousness of others, i have been roaming the internet trying to find information on what type/form of transportation takes me to ulster, my boyfriend just got transferred there on friday, and I'm soo lost as to how i can comfortably get there and back safely.. I know from another forum that Ulster is like a holding facility??/ that he isn't going to be there long.. but I wanna see him before he gets transferred..Please help..

06-25-2013, 06:02 AM
was he transferred from county to ulster? if so he is in the reception part and will probably only be there for a couple weeks to a month at most. i believe if he is in reception you have to wait 14 days before you can see him although i read on here that that has been changed to 7 maybe, call and check. if he was transfered there from another prison he is probably in general prop and could be there for a few months to doing most his time there. if i remember right without looking it up ulster is a max facility.
