For convenience and flexibility, we recommend traveling the Hudson Valley by car, though the area does boast a number of public transportation options. The Hudson Line of the Metro-North Railroad travels from New York City’s Grand Central Terminal along the river to Poughkeepsie, including stops in Yonkers, Tarrytown, Cortlandt, and Peekskill. Amtrak’s Adirondack line also chugs through the Hudson Valley. Bus service is available through Adirondack Trailways, Greyhound and Short Line Coach USA. Taxis are generally available at train and bus stations, though you may have to call for a cab outside of peak hours.
