WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The long absence of bus service in Waynesboro comes to an end next week.
Local and state officials will cut a ribbon on Center Square at 9:30 a.m.Tuesday, launching daily bus service in Waynesboro. It will be provided by the Chambersburg Transit Authority, which runs a public service in that city, said CTA Director Doug Filson.
Later on in the week, possibly as soon as Thursday, the privately owned Rouzerville Express will begin its service through the borough and township, according to owner Robert Backer of Rouzerville.
The transit authority will run over an 18-mile, 28-stop run from Rouzerville to Zullinger between 8 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Riders will pay $1 per trip. Children will ride for half fare and seniors will ride free.
