Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Michael P. Kearns announced the Erie County Auto Bureau’s Mobile Unit will resume services inside Grand Island Town Hall starting Wednesday, May 25th. Kearns has been working with Town Clerk Pattie Frentzel and Supervisor John Whitney to ensure a healthy environment to offer expedited services to residents of Grand Island looking to conduct their DMV transactions locally.

“I made a pledge that I would resume Mobile Auto Bureau operations once I was confident that they would operate efficiently and in a safe and healthy environment for our customers and staff,” said County Clerk Kearns. “I am pleased to work with our partners in government in order to do just that, re-open DMV operations for all motorists on Grand Island with no additional costs to the residents of Erie County.”

The Mobile Auto Bureau will serve Grand Island motorists every Wednesday from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. inside Town Hall located at 2255 Baseline Road. Those who enter through the front entrance on the second floor may utilize the elevator to get to the lower level. Residents will be served on a first-come basis; no reservations are required. 

“We are pleased to welcome the Erie County Auto Bureau Mobile Unit back to Grand Island Town Hall and work with County Clerk Kearns to offer DMV services to our residents and promote the ‘Renew Local’ effort,” stated Town Clerk Pattie Frentzel.

Kearns added, “My goal has always been to provide our customers with the finest service possible at a convenient location, and this mobile site will continue to do that. In addition, the more transactions performed in our local auto bureaus the more revenue we retain in Erie County, not Albany.”

Customers can renew or replace their current New York State driver’s license or non-driver ID, apply for a standard non-Driver ID, renew any vehicle registration, surrender or replace peeling license plates, and pay any violation penalties. However, due the complexities of certain transactions, and in an effort to provide quick, efficient service, the following transaction are not able to be conducted: applying for a REAL ID/Enhanced Driver License or non-Driver ID, any class permit or endorsement testing, driver improvement or enforcement related transaction. As always, motorists are encouraged to “Renew Local” and patronize any of our other Erie County Auto Bureau offices in order to complete the full spectrum of DMV transactions and to help keep a portion of the transaction fees in Erie County.

A complete listing of all Erie County Auto Bureau locations and hours, including scheduling a reservation at a local office, can be found by going to or by calling the Clerk’s Appointment Hotline at 716-858-8864.
