Public Transportation

Get on the bus!

All of the buses offer wifi, and on some it actually works!

WFS is located in High Falls, NY. Although there isn’t a direct bus route right to our door, Adirondack Trailways buses (800-858-8555) leave from Port Authority in NYC and drop off in the nearby town of New Paltz about 10 miles from the sanctuary. (You can also book tickets to Rosendale, about 6 miles from the sanctuary, but the cab fare is comparable and New Paltz has a larger bus depot.)

You can buy tickets online but you must have access to a printer and while you’ll avoid all the lines, the resulting ticket will be non-refundable. The fare is about $21 each way.

Once you arrive in New Paltz, you can take a taxi to our location at 2 Rescue Road (give the driver the address 6 Epworth Lane/Epworth Camp if they are unfamiliar with our new street name) in High Falls, NY, 12440. Rescue Road intersects with Lucas Turnpike/CR-1. The cab fare is around $20-$30.

The schedule below is accurate as of the date indicated, but we recommend you double-check with the Trailways site.
