The bus leaving the New Castle Transfer Center at 6:45 AM will be given the flexibility to leave Portersville Park & Ride a few minutes early. It will not leave before 7:10AM under any circumstances, but it does not have to wait until the 7:15 time. We are making this change to help alleviate this bus getting caught in the congestion headed into Pittsburgh. (Run 712 AM)
As there seems to be some confusion on where senior passes can be utilized, we are posting this alert.
Senior passes can be used on all NCATA routes.
We hope this clears up some of the confusion.
