WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Waynesboro area residents got a free bus ride Saturday in the first promotional effort by the borough's new public bus service since it began running more than five weeks ago.
Doug Filson, director of the Chambersburg Transit Authority, which is providing the bus for Waynesboro, said so far about 40 riders a day have been boarding the new line daily.
It makes an 18-mile, 28-stop circle through the borough and Washington Township Monday through Saturday. The bus runs from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.. The fixed route makes stops at housing developments, both malls, Waynesboro Hospital, YMCA, senior center, human services offices and health services.
