RVT Begins Trial to Williamsport High School Campus
Williamsport, PA… River Valley Transit offers bus service from downtown Williamsport to the main entrance of the Williamsport High school effective immediately. There are 4 round trips between the hours of 7:45am and 6pm on weekdays. The Millionaire Express bus is for the general public as a fixed route, meaning that it has designated start and end locations and operates Monday through Friday.
For a limited time “family members can get to the school at the top of Millionaire Drive to escort their students, meet with teachers and attend functions” said Todd Wright, acting Executive Director of River Valley Transit. Students may use the public transit option when they need rides outside of the regular school bus operations. Riders can use any of the designated bus stops along West Fourth Street between William Street and Millionaire Drive to get to the school. Stand on the north side of West Fourth street and look for the bus with “Millionaire Express” illuminated on the front of the bus above the windshield. Departure times, locations and complete schedules are on the website www.rideRVT.com.
Regular fares apply for all routes and students under the age 17 pay only $1 for each ride. Seniors over the age of 65 may ride free with the Pennsylvania State ID card. Bus passes may be purchased from the bus operator, in advance at the Transit Centre, 144 West Third Street or on their smart phone using the Token Transit application. Small discounts are offered when purchasing passes in advance at the Transit Centre. Touchless bus passes on a smart phone are purchased directly on the Token Transit application.
If the ridership is significant there will be further discussion after the 90 days trial service about continuing the Millionaire Express route. More information on Public Transit is available at www.rideRVT.com or call 570-326-2500.
