Broome County Sheriff inmate visitation schedule

Public Bus to the jail:  limited hours, esp at night on BC Transit route 8.  When reading the schedule, note carefully that only those 8 buses marked “J” go to the jail, and require you to be 5 minutes before the listed SUNY Broome departures times.  Thus on Mon-Fri according to the schedule the only buses leaving the downtown BC Junction departure site are at  8:30am 10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm, and 5:10pm.  Returning the buses are only usually from the jail at 10:35am, 11:55am, 2:35pm, 5:15pm, 7:35pm, and 8:45pm.
