How will I be able to find the stops?
Stop signage will be mounted at each stop location. There also will be a short section of curbing marked in green, indicating the stop. A map can be downloaded here and you can view an interactive map that shows where the shuttles are in real time.
I see the shuttle service is free - do I need to sign up ahead of time
or just get on?
You do not need to sign up. Anyone can just get on at the designated stop locations on a first come, first serve basis.
How long will it take to ride from Olneyvile to the Train Station?
About 20 minutes.
If a shuttle arrives and is full, how long will I have to wait for another?
Wait time is approximately 10-15 minutes.
Can I request a stop before I get to the next scheduled stop?
No. The vehicles only operate on the pre-programmed route and stops, not on demand.
Will the shuttle run in bad weather?
The project team and partners will always prioritize safety in bad weather, including snow. Depending on the condition, the vehicles may be operated in manual mode or delayed until weather conditions improve. Service alerts will be posted at shuttle stops and on this website.
Does the shuttle run on holidays?
The shuttle runs on most holidays with the exception of Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.
