Community Bus - No Fee to Ride
We have suspended all out of Town services for our community bus, but our in-Town service is still available until further notice. Bus hours will be varied to accommodate extended early access for seniors/disabled residents only. There will be no fee for use of the bus at this time.
In the spirit of precaution, we are limiting passengers to 2 people at a time and seating them accordingly to comply with social distancing measures.
