Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area
Transit in the Park 2014!
Spring is Here!
As the snow and ice retreats from the hills and lakes, we can begin thinking about the 2014 Transit in the Park season. MCTA will be providing service from Delaware Water Gap borough to Milford this summer. DWGNRA has authorized the opening of Milford Beach and Kittattany Point, however we are unable to travel to NJ at this time. Check back here in the next few weeks for updates as to service for 2014. See you soon on the river!
The Pocono Pony River Runner makes it easy to get around destinations in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Our transportation service provides portage for people, boats, bikes and more. Free service will operate each weekend from Memorial Day weekend (starting Saturday, May 24, 2014) through Labor Day including Indpendence Day, Memorial Day and Labor Day (ending Monday, September 1, 2014).
The service will start in Delaware Water Gap Borough and go to Milford Beach and Milford Borough.
