Martz Temporarily Shutting Down their PA/NYC Service


Early morning commuters to New York City at Mount Pocono's Martz station will temporarily need to find another way to work beginning this Saturday.

Despite the shutdown of non-essential businesses in New York City, full Martz buses have continued to ferry passengers between its Mount Pocono and other Pennsylvania facilities and New York City. Mount Pocono residents have become increasingly anxious over the daily traffic to and from the epicenter of the nation's coronavirus outbreak. Martz has also received public pressure from Pocono area state representative Rosemary Brown and Maureen Madden. That pressure received substantial support when the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that persons traveling from New York City quarantine for 14 days. Today, to great relief of residents as expressed on various social media, Martz announced that it would be suspending the service beginning Saturday, March 28 through Sunday, April 12. They are also suspending service to Philadelphia, which is also under the governor's stay-at-home order. The announcement, made on the company's website, referred to the federal guidance. The company says the "targeted" date for resumption of service is April 13, leaving open the possibility of a longer shutdown.
