Get on the bus!

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 the Rosendale Park-and-Ride, about 6 miles from the sanctuary, but the cab fare is comparable and New Paltz has a bustling town to visit.)

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.

There is a taxi dispatcher inside the bus ticket office, or use these contact numbers to reach a taxi:

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