Skylands Ride transit services are a lifeline for many residents, providing transportation to essential medical appointments, dialysis, and other life-saving treatments, in addition to providing transportation to work.

Sussex County provides public and community paratransit transportation to many of the County's senior citizens, workers, persons with disabilities, and the general public. Drivers traveled over 635,000 miles last year, and Skylands Ride is proud of their safe and reliable service. The Safety Award represents more than just safe driving.
