The Greenville Area Transit system this month will exptend is service to the Pitt County Council on Aging, the Alice F. Keene Center and the Leroy James Pitt County Farmer's Market on County Home Road, the city announced.
The GREAT Bus system will alter Routes 1 and 4 to accommodate the new service, which goes into effect Feb. 18. The system's other four routes will not be affected.
Route 1 currently provides transportation service to the Fifth Street area between Holly Street and Brownlea Drive, as well as First Street between Brownlea Drive and South Jarvis Street. Service for this area will be transferred to Route 4 as part of the change. The adjustment will allow additional time to Route 1 provide transportation services to County Home Road.
Route 1 will travel its current path from the G.K. Butterfield Transportation Center to Charles Boulevard, but then turn right on Fire Tower Road before turning left onto County Home Road. It will conclude the outbound trip at the Alice Keene Center, then return to the G.K. Butterfield Center along the current route.
"We are very happy to announce that we are adding service to our GREAT System," Public Works Director Kevin Mulligan said. "The Council on Aging and the Farmer's Market provide essential services to our residents, and we are pleased to make these locations available as part of our transit operations."
