The Nantucket Regional Transit Authority announced today that from November 25th through December 31st Wave fixed route bus service and Your Island Ride demand response services will be free.
This is in part to a grant included in the state budget and awarded by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. The program is designed to encourage new customers to “Try Transit” by offering no cost trips to shop or dine at local businesses, visit with friends and family, and commute to work during the holiday season.
In addition to our fare paying customers that will be able to ride for free, customers that have 2022 Annual passes, can bring in their 2022 annual passes and receive $25 off their 2023 Annual pass.
“MassDOT is pleased to have worked closely with the Commonwealth’s 15 Regional Transit Authorities to utilize the funding awarded in the FY23 state budget for the “Try Transit” program. This initiative is another example of the many efforts where MassDOT and the RTAs collaborate to improve mobility options for Massachusetts transit customers,” commented MassDOT Rail & Transit Administrator Meredith Slesinger
