NEW DASH BUS SCHEDULE - EFFECTIVE, JULY 8, 2019

Please note the following changes to the Rockland and the Belfast DASH bus route schedules, effective Monday, July 8th, 2019.

We have carefully designed these new routes and schedules using data gathered during the past year of testing the new DASH system, The new routes are based on passenger use, analysis of which stops are being used, feedback from the communities regarding the need for new stops and fiscal feasibility studies.
