SHERIDAN — Public meetings about a new fixed bus route that Goose Creek Transit will begin operating in October will be held Sept. 18 at 9 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Hub on Smith at 211 Smith St.
The purpose of the meetings will be to introduce and share information about the new service.
The fixed route service area will extend from the north end of town to the Covey Run Apartments on the west side of town to Brundage Lane on the south end of town, with many stops in between.
Service will include a fixed route bus every hour between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
No advance reservations are necessary. People will simply need to be at one of the designated bus stops before the scheduled time and the driver will pull in to the stop.
When a rider approaches their destination, they will pull the stop request cord and the driver will pull into the next bus stop for departure.
Due to the nature of the funding from a Community Service Block Grant, this service will not require a fare. However, donations will be gratefully accepted.
Goose Creek Transit’s current door-to-door service with advanced reservations will not change.
