ULSTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- One of the biggest headaches for holiday shoppers is trying to find a parking spot. To cut down on traffic congestion and make it easier for holiday shoppers, Ulster County Executive Mike Hein launched a weekend bus service.
Shoppers can park at one of the nine shopping centers in town and travel by bus to the other nearby stores. Hein says the bus loop is all about convenience.
"It is about people going to one location, parking their car and being able to get all over the place on a loop. To make it as easy as possible," Hein said.
The weekend bus service will run from November 24th to December 23rd. The bus fee is 50 cents.
