9-Town Transit offers Free bus rides on weekends & holidays this summer

By Cathy Iino.

(May 28, 2021) — Starting today, and through Labor Day, all 9-Town Transit bus rides will be free on weekends and holidays. This includes Route 645, which runs between Middletown and the shoreline, all along Route 81 in Killingworth. You can flag down the bus anywhere on the route. For the schedule and other information, go to https://estuarytransit.org.
For the summer of 2021, the bus will go to Hammonassett State Park on Saturdays and Sundays–for free! Enjoy the beach with no worry about parking.
Free taxi rides to vaccination appointments are still available to Killingworth residents 7 days per week, also courtesy of the Estuary Transit District. The vehicle will provide wait-and-return service, and can be used for drive-through sites. A wheelchair-accessible vehicle will be provided upon request. Up to three (3) companions, including a personal care attendant, may ride for free with the eligible rider. The eligible rider and companions must have the same origin and destination.
Book a trip by calling the taxi provider, Curtin Transportation, at 860-443-1655 between 9:00 am and 1:30 pm Monday through Friday, at least one day in advance.
This could be the beginning of a beautiful summer.
