Avon transit test program continues through April 2

AVON — As part of an Avon Transit pilot program, the town of Avon added two free transit routes to the regular schedule in early February. The town contracted with Peak 1 Express to provide these services through April 2 in order to enhance transit services to Avon residents and guests. Ridership has been collected and reported to the town on a weekly basis. After evaluating the ridership data, the services have been amended as described below.

Wildridge service

Due to low ridership during all service hours provided on the Wildridge Express Shuttle, the Wildridge Express Shuttle has ended all service.

A new, free on-demand service for Wildridge addresses will be provided from 8 to 9:30 a.m. and from 4 to 5:30 p.m. A rider may reserve at any time one or more one-way rides by calling Peak 1 Express dispatch, 970-423-5193. A one-way ride will be to or from a residential or commercial address to or from the Avon Station bus shelter during the on-demand service hours If more rides are requested than available during the on-demand service hours, the caller will be informed that “service is full for the day, please select another reservation time.”
