With state Rep. Tina Pickett’s (R-110) Senior Expo coming up on June 21, BeST Transit is making seniors aware of the transportation options available going to and from the annual event in Athens.

According to a press release: “Transportation is available via BeST Transit’s door-to-door Senior Shared Ride and Persons With Disabilities transportation programs and the general public fixed-route (Route 15 and Route 10). Registered seniors (age 65 or older) and registered PWD passengers must call by 11 a.m. the business day before to schedule their respective trips to the expo.

“The general public fixed route is also available for the general public to use to the expo. Passengers can catch the 9:30 a.m. bus at Sullivan Terrace. The bus will arrive at the Progress Building in Towanda at 10 a.m. Passengers will then need to transfer to the northbound Route 10 bus that leaves the Progress Building at 10:30 a.m. The Route 10 bus will travel to Greens Landing and travelers will need to transfer at Greens Landing to connect with the 11 a.m. Valley Loop bus. The bus, on this particular day, will deviate to Rep. Pickett’s expo at Lynch-Bustin Elementary School.

“Passengers needing to return to Sullivan County will need to catch the 1:45 p.m. Valley Loop bus from the expo southbound to Greens Landing.
