Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority have announced that from November 25th through December 31st fixed route bus services will be free every Friday and Saturday. The program is designed to encourage new customers to “Try Transit” by offering no cost trips to shop or dine at local businesses, visit with friends and family, and commute to work during the holiday season. The Cape Cod RTA also offers Free Fares for adults 60 and over every Wednesday.
“Although primarily designed to attract new customers by easing access to services, “Try Transit” will of course also offer a financial reprieve to current riders during these times of high inflation and holiday shopping. It is expected that the savings and increased mobility offered by CCRTA fixed route services will translate into increased spending at local shops and restaurants. In addition, using public transit during the holiday season will help to address parking challenges that exist and reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” stated CCRTA Administrator Tom Cahir.
Marty Bruemmel, President/CEO of the Greater Hyannis Chamber of Commerce added, "With the upcoming Holiday season, the “Try Transit” program gives the shopper an excellent opportunity to help get out and shop, then celebrate the Holidays at a local restaurant or pub and not have to worry about any packed parking lots and driving. It’ll also help showcase the excellent services provided by the Cape Cod RTA."
