BLUE LOON BUS ROUTES CLARIFIED

by Gair on April 23, 2013

THE TRANSPORTATION DIRECTOR FOR THE BLUE LOON BUS SERVICE SAYS THERE HAS BEEN CONFUSION ABOUT WHAT SERVICES HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED – AND THOSE THAT ARE STILL OPERATING.

BEVERLY RAYMOND OF TRI COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION PROGRAM SAYS SERVICES THAT STILL OPERATING INCLUDE THE DIAL-A-RIDE THAT SERVES TOWNS FROM CONWAY SOUTH TO WOLFEBORO.

TWO SHOPPING TRIPS ARE ALSO OFFERED EACH MONTH TO NORTH CONWAY AND ROCHESTER – ADULTS 60 YEARS OR OLDER AND DISABLED INDIVIDUALS GET PRIORITY SEATING FOR THOSE.

THE SO-CALLED “FLEX ROUTE” FROM WEST OSSIPEE TO LACONIA IS ALSO OPERATING AND MAKES THREE DAILY RUNS. COMMUTERS CAN PARK IN THE TRAMWAY PARKING LOT IN WEST OSSIPEE AND BOARD THE BUS TO LACONIA.

A SPECIAL UNLIMITED RIDING DISCOUNT FOR TEENS UNDER 19 WORKING SUMMER JOBS IN LACONIA IS BEING OFFERED.

SOME OTHER TRANSPORTATION SERVICES PREVIOUSLY OFFERED BY TRI COUNTY CAP – THE NON PROFIT SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCY THAT SERVES CARROLL, COOS AND GRAFTON COUNTIES – HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED DUE TO BUDGET CONSTRAINTS AND LOW RIDERSHIP.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT FARES AND SERVICES STILL BEING OFFERED, CALL 1-866-752-6890 OR SEE THE WEBSITE AT www.tccap.org.
