FREE Shuttle Service Now Available in Old Forge and Thendara

An exciting new free service is available in the Old Forge/ Thendara area. A looped transit service will be provided through the core of the Old Forge area. The service will be operated with two smaller, shuttle sized vehicles.

The Community Shuttle will travel from Hollister’s Trading Post/ VIEW on the north end of town to the Thendara Railroad Station/ Van Auken’s Inne on the south end of town. The Bear Route and Moose Route shuttles provide approxi-mately 15 stops throughout the town for easy on/off access at points of interest and are fully wheelchair and ADA accessible!

The Community Shuttle is operating as a two-year pilot program through utilization of Federal Rural Transit funding. The pilot has been made possible through the cooperation of Town of Webb and Herkimer County as the project sponsors. Local business contribution and community backing for this shuttle have made it possible; the support is unparalleled in other rural transit systems.

The Map below provides an idea of where the loops run. To get information about the schedule, etc., of this new service, visit Herkimer Oneida Counties Transportation Study website.
