09/12 – GATRA Continues Shuttle Bus in Pembroke

GATRA and the Town of Pembroke announced today that they have agreed to continue operating the Pembroke Shuttle Bus Service to the Hanson Commuter Rail Station.  This decision was based on the comments received at a public hearing held on June 21, 2012, in Pembroke.

In the meantime, GATRA and the Town are focusing on ways to make the shuttle service more cost effective while also considering other options for providing access to the train station and even further mobility into the Town of Pembroke.

Effective Monday, September 17, 2012, GATRA will begin instituting a daily fare for riding the service.  Up until now the service has been free of charge.  GATRA will implement the following one-way fares:

                        Regular ……………………………………..  $  1.00

                        Elderly (over 60) ……………………………  $  0.50

                        Disabled/Medicare Card Holder…………..  $ 0.50

                        Student …………………………………..….. $ 0.50

                        Children (6 & under with adult) …………….FREE

 At this time, no decision has been made regarding the offering of a monthly pass program.   GATRA is working closely with the Town and the operator to figure out the most suitable method for instituting a pass program.  As the planning moves ahead, GATRA will also survey the riders of Pembroke shuttle to gain insight and identify new ideas for enhancing the commuter shuttle service.
