Siler City, NC - Chatham Transit has launched a new fixed route transportation service with a regular schedule throughout Siler City to help the general public get to key retail, employment and commercial destinations. In the spirit of the holiday season, Chatham Transit is offering free rides on the new shuttle until the end of December.

The shuttle is a fixed-route service, which means that Chatham Transit has vehicles running a set route with 25 stops where vehicles pick up and drop off riders. Two vehicles running in opposite directions leave Siler City Town Hall on weekdays at 8:00 am, making six trips around the circuit, with the last trip ending at 6:15 pm.

“The 25 stops are conveniently located to move residents from residential areas to commercial areas and back,” said Amber Wagner, executive director of Chatham Transit.

The service is available to the general public with no need advance reservations. Anyone wanting to ride should locate the closest bus stop to their starting location and go to that stop five minutes before the scheduled arrival time.

The cost for a one-way trip is $1.00 or $3.00 for an all-day pass. Complimentary service each weekday is available for residents meeting disability certification requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The group worked to provide reliable transportation to connect Siler City residents with employment, shopping and leisure destinations in Siler City.
