The Doylestown area now has two buses to help residents get to and from shops, restaurants and attractions.
A second Doylestown DART bus went into service Monday, cutting the waiting time in half, said Lou White, chairman of the DART bus committee and a former borough councilman.
“With one bus, we got about 40 riders a day. With two buses, we’re expecting that to at least double,” White said. “They’re not just for senior citizens; students at Delaware Valley College can use them to get around, too.”
The one-hour, 15-minute routes connect Neshaminy Manor, the county’s long-term nursing home on Easton Road, and the Cross Keys Shopping Center at Routes 611 and 313. The 17 stops in between are the Weis, Acme, and Barn shopping centers; Center Square; Wesley Enhanced Living and Grundy Senior Living centers; the Central Bucks Family YMCA; Doylestown Hospital; Del Val College; the Michener Art Museum; the Mercer Museum; the Bucks County Free Library; the county Courthouse; the SEPTA train station; Lenape Valley Foundation; Doylestown Meadows apartments, and the Central Bucks Senior Center.
