Upon receipt of completed application and certification as a County resident age 60 or older, the Department of Public Transportation will issue a numbered photo identification (I.D.) card.
Non-senior residents with disabilities:
Certification is required and can be obtained from the following agencies:
- Alzheimer's Association
- Camp Venture
- Mental Health Association and associated programs (see Section 2.9 Certifying Agencies)
- Association for the Visually Impaired (AVI)
- Rockland County Department of Mental Health
Disabled residents who do not receive services from any of the above agencies may obtain certification through BRIDGES (formerly Rockland Independent Living Center). The final determination regarding eligibility rests with the certifying agency. Once a resident is certified, the applicant must bring the certification to the Rockland County Department of Public Transportation (Building T, Yeager Health Complex, Pomona.) Upon acceptance, a numbered photo ID card will be issued.
Residents with disabilities may also be eligible for ADA TRIPS Service.
When an applicant has been found eligible for Regular TRIPS service, that person will receive a packet of materials providing information on how to make reservations, the rights and responsibilities of riders, how to make complaints and other important information.
The cost of the photo ID card is $2.00. I.D. cards are issued Monday through Friday at the Rockland County Department of Public Transportation located in Building T at the Dr. Robert L. Yeager Health Center, Pomona, NY. The hours are from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Complete details regarding Regular TRIPS Service are available from the Department of Public Transportation by calling the Transit Information Center at (845) 364-3333.
