YCCAC announces “Curb to Curb Tuesdays” in Waterboro and Alfred beginning July 3rd
York County’s Thriving in Place program is teaming up with YCCAC’s Transportation program to offer a new Pilot Program, “Curb to Curb Tuesdays,” a Local Rides option with limited services for the towns of Waterboro, East Waterboro, North Waterboro, and Alfred.
Beginning Tuesday, July 3rd, the Local Rides bus will provide “curb to curb service” from your residence to shopping and medical appointments in Sanford/Springvale, and then back to your home. The cost is only $4.00 per person, round-trip.
It’s a simple, inexpensive, and trouble-free way to get to shopping sites in Sanford (Walmart, Hannaford, Dollar Store, local pharmacies, and more!), and to medical appointments.
It works like this: Residents of these communities need to reserve their ride by calling (207) 459-9283 no later than the Friday before the Tuesday pickup. An estimated time for pick-up will be given over the phone. On that Tuesday morning, a Local Rides bus will come to your home, pick you up, and transport you to your shopping destinations or your medical appointments in Sanford / Springvale. (Medical appointments will be limited to between 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. for this Local Rides run.) Payment of $4.00 will be made upon pick-up; exact change is required. When you’ve finished shopping or your medical appointment is done, the bus will take you back home.
York County’s Thriving in Place and the YCCAC Transportation programs are trying to make getting to shopping sites and medical appointments as easy and convenient as possible for residents in these communities.
