COAST canceling bus route from Rochester to Pease International Tradeport
DOVER - COAST bus riders on the Seacoast should get ready for more changes.
The bus service has announced it is ending the direct route from Rochester to Pease International Tradeport. COAST is citing low ridership.
COAST says the average monthly ridership on the route last year was 38, well below the numbers for other routes.
COAST receives federal funds, so a public hearing on the route a public hearing could be held if there is enough demand.
Written requests for a public hearing must be made by March 4. They can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to coast, 42 Summer Drive, Dover, NH.
Mailed requests must be postmarked by March 2.
The change in service is scheduled to begin on April 2.
