The Broome County Jail is located on upper front street in Binghamton, 153 Lt VanWinkle Dr, Binghamton, NY 13905-1338. Public bus transport is limited to irregular service on the number 8 BC transit . See: http://www.gobroomecounty.com/transit/8-Front-St for a schedule. 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.
We need to obtain more regular, frequent service for the hundreds and hundreds of persons who have family in the jail.
