Gold Star shuttle will have reduced hours on weekends
The shuttle across the Gold Star Bridge will operate on reduced hours on the weekends, beginning Saturday, Oct. 6, due to low ridership, according to the Southeast Area Transit District and the state Department of Transportation.
The free shuttle now will run every 30 minutes from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, rather than from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
"We are making this change due to very low ridership in the early mornings and late afternoons on weekends," according to the announcement on SEAT's website.
The shuttle will continue to run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays.
DOT contracted with SEAT to provide the bus during the sidewalk repair project on the bridge. The bus stops near the New London closed entrance to the walkway off of Williams Street and near the two closed entrances at Bridge Street and Riverview Avenue in Groton.
