How are you planning to travel? The train stops in Poughkeepsie. You can get a cab there.

Metro North (commuter rail) from Grand Central schedules here: …mta.info/mnr/…schedules.htm (See the Hudson Line schedules, cost and train times vary)

For Poughkeepsie/Hyde Park there might be some taxis waiting at the station, but if not you just phone for one: as0.mta.info/mnr/stations/station_detail.cfm

Amtrak also follows that route, but can be more expensive and has fewer trains. http://www.amtrak.com/northeast-train-routes Amtrak departs from Penn Station.

I assumed the OP knows that as they specifically asked about travel times to Poughkeepsie and then the availability of taxis.

Not sure why the second link in my previous post isn't working properly. Click on Poughkeepsie on this map http://web.mta.info/mnr/html/mnrmap.htm for local taxi info.

If you're going to one of the Roosevelt / Vanderbilt sites there is a (seasonal) shuttle bus from the train station: nps.gov/hofr/planyourvisit/experience-the-ro…
