FRTA Announces Weekend Service Bus Pilot Program

Begins Sunday, February 14th

FRTA is excited to announce that we will begin piloting a new WEEKEND SERVICE project!!! Beginning Sunday, February 14th FRTA will be expanding its current Access program to provide service on the weekends from 9:30am to 5:30pm. This program is open to the general public and allows anyone to schedule their own curb-to-curb transportation using a free smart phone app available on both the Apple Store and Google Play.
Operating in four “zones” people can travel in and around Deerfield, Erving, Gill, Greenfield, Leyden, Montague, New Salem, Orange, Warwick, Wendell, and Whately as well as Downtown Shelburne Falls (Arms Library), Charlemont Park & Ride, Athol Hospital, Athol YMCA,and Athol Market Basket. Fares are $3 within zones and $4 between zones. No smart phone; no problem. Just reach out to us to learn more about setting up an account through our new online web portal.
For more information on our Access program and new weekend service pilot visit our website – www.frta.org/getting-around/frta-access-program/. Anyone with challenges with the phone app or accessing the online web portal can email frtaaccess@gmail.com. Please help us spread the word!
