FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Summer shuttle services to begin in Kingston on Saturday, June 3rd
KINGSTON, N.Y. Mayor Steve Noble is pleased to announce the return of Saturday shuttle services in the City of Kingston this summer, beginning on Saturday, June 3rd.
“Our pilot shuttle service last summer attracted significant interest among residents, business owners and visitors in our City,” said Mayor Noble. “The feedback we received helped to refine our operations, enabling us to focus on building a convenient, accessible and enjoyable shuttle service to operate on Saturdays throughout the summer.”
The shuttle will operate Saturdays from Noon to 9:00pm and will run on a continuous loop with no service breaks. The first Uptown location, in front of the North Front St. municipal lots, will have pickups at the top of each hour. The first Downtown location, in front of the Heritage Area Visitors Center, will have pickups on the half hour. Riders can pick up the shuttle at any of the locations listed on the shuttle schedule or they can flag the shuttle along the route. The shuttle will not deviate from the fixed route in order to maintain a consistent schedule. The cost of the service is $2.00 for the entire day.
“While Kingston isn’t a large city by any definition, our community can sometimes feel fragmented and disconnected. I believe this service is a step towards breaking down these barriers and offering an affordable opportunity for individuals and families to experience each of our unique business districts. I encourage all who live, work and visit here to leave their cars, hop on the shuttle, and explore our beautiful city this summer.”
Riders interested in providing feedback about the shuttle services, including remarks on service times, pick up locations, and general suggestions can e-mail their comments to email@example.com.
