Ride the Bus For Free In St. Michaels

Share

This spring, Delmarva Community Transit began operating a circulating bus service throughout the town of St. Michaels in an effort to provide an affordable option for residents to access local businesses and connect with bus service to Easton.

“Not everyone is familiar with riding a bus”, said Mary Handley, Mobility Manager for Delmarva Community Transit.  “We, in conjunction with the city and county thought it would be a great idea to have  a “Ride the Bus for Free Day”, to give folks an opportunity to try the service out and have a little bit of fun in the process, Handley said.

Saturday, July 7, between 9 a.m. and 12 noon, anyone may hop on and off of the circulator without paying a fare.  Anyone riding can put their name in to win prizes presented at 12 noon.  Also riders will   receive vouchers which when used to ride the bus any day after the 7th, will act as a discount coupon for local businesses.

Local participating businesses include Sunnyside Shop – 10% discount; Carpenter St. Saloon- one free coffee; Grauls – 5% off grocery purchase and a reusable shopping bag; Treasure Cove Thrift Store- $5 off purchase and more!

Other businesses have contributed toward gift basket prizes including breakfast for two at the Carpenter St. Saloon.

Travel Trainers will be located throughout the town to assist people with directions and helpful information about riding the bus.

“We are so grateful to the city and county for working to provide transit service for the residents”, Handley said.  “Now it is up to us to make sure everyone has an opportunity to try the service out, ask questions and hopefully continue to ride”.
