ROCKINGHAM – The Current will not operate the Bellows Falls-Chester-Okemo winter seasonal bus route March 17-22, 2020 because of Okemo postponing its operations during that time.
This route, also known as the #61, operates seasonally to transport Okemo workers. Okemo makes a substantial annual contribution to the operating costs, and ridership is up slightly this year over last.
Vail Resorts, Okemo’s parent company, decided Saturday night to suspend operations at all of its North American resorts, including Okemo, from March 15-22. The Current operated the #61 Sunday and Monday, March 15-16, just in case staff needed to go to work.
Vail Resorts will announce Friday, March 20th, if it will re-open resorts starting March 23rd or not. The Current will mirror Vail’s decision on whether it resumes #61 service or not and will make an announcement.
The service was scheduled daily until April 12th.
