Local middle, high school transit service available
Watertown Transit is currently accepting information from potential riders going to either the middle school or high school this school year.
Watertown Transit offers “corner stop” bus service to both schools in the morning and afternoon. Cost for the service is $2 per student, per trip.
Anyone choosing to use this service should call Watertown Transit at 261-7433 by Wednesday to register. Watertown Transit will call registered riders Thursday and Friday, Aug. 31, with corner pickup times.
In order to accommodate as many riders as possible, Watertown Transit will have the routes start at approximately 6:45 a.m. and pick up riders going to the high school, arriving there at approximately 7:20 a.m. At approximately 7 a.m., Watertown Transit will pick up middle school riders, arriving there at approximately 7:45 a.m.
In the event there are high school and middle school riders at the same corner stop, there may be two different pickup times for that stop, one for high school riders and one for middle school riders. This is being done to make the service more user-friendly and to shorten the time that riders are on the buses.
In addition to corner stop services, prescheduled daily door-to-door service is also available for all students to any school at a cost of $2.75 per student, per trip.
