Community Voices Heard's Dutchess County Chapter has played a key role in preventing the City of Poughkeepsie bus system from being eliminated and replaced with the private Dutchess County Loop system operated by First Transit, a transportation company based in Ohio. While CVH members were previously able to prevent the buses from being cut a few years ago, the adopted city budget for 2017 had only allocated funds for the buses until June 30th.
