Wake Forest bus loop started last month and has been a huge success. It is a weekday circulator bus that will make a clockwise one hour loop through inner Wake Forest and part of Wakefield Plantation. Stops include schools, government offices, a hospital, shopping centers and supermarkets!!!! What a great way for all of us to save on gas.  The first morning bus leaves Lowes Foods in Wake Forest Crossing off Capital Boulevard at 5:35 a.m. and the last bus leaves at 7:00 p.m. Other stops include White Street at Elm Avenue (with a connection to the express bus to Raleigh, read “Downtown Express for a bargain at $2.50”) and the Kroger supermarket at Wakefield Commons on Forest Pines Drive.

This is an awesome convenience for not only seniors but for young adults in the Wakefield community who do not drive yet and have always relied on their parents to drive them around. Now all can get to the library, post office and the movie theater.

 

For more information, call 485-7433 or check gotriangle.org.

 

Forgot to mention that the Wake Forest-Wakefield circulator will run free of charge for the first SIX MONTHS, then only $1.00 fare to be charged starting in January.

 

Get Looping!!!!
