ROCKINGHAM: The Current will change its Route 57 Bellows Falls-Ludlow bus schedule effective November 6, 2017.
The new schedule will accomplish several goals. It will meet up with the Ludlow-Rutland bus which recently changed its schedule. It will eliminate the last trip to Ludlow in the evening which was seldom used. And it will start later in the morning (6:35 am versus the existing 5:00 am which generated very small ridership). The route’s stops will not change.
“We are making these changes as a result of several rider surveys, research done by the Southern Windsor Regional Planning Commission study, and a series of public meetings,” said Rebecca Gagnon, The Current’s General Manager. “The goals are to provide better service and increase ridership”.
The Current ceased charging a $2.00 fare earlier this year also in the interest of improving ridership which has been successful. A new brochure is planned, and schedules along the route will be updated as part of an effort to market the route.
The schedule is available on The Current’s website, www.crtransit.org .
