If you are trying to make your money go as far as possible, it might help if you try the SPARC -- Sandusky Perkins Area Ride Connection. It starts March 16.
This is a fixed route that has a full variety of bus stops at popular destinations. It’s a one-hour loop that the Sandusky Transit System is implementing that will help people get to where they need to go -- without having to book in advance!
Every hour starting at 6 a.m. until 9 p.m., the bus will stop at the following locations:
Fallen Timber Dr./Pioneer Trail - :00 (At the top of every hour.)
Scott St./Warren St. - :05
Franklin St./Adams St. - :13
Harborview/Viewpoint Apt. - :15
Madison St./Lawrence St. - :18
Camp St./Monroe St. (7/11 store) :20
Camp St./Buchanan St. - :23
Kroger Plaza - :28
Perkins Plaza - :32
OVH/Strub Road - :35
Days Inn (across from the Mall) - :37
Crossings shopping plaza - :40
Walmart/Job Store - :45
Meijer - :50
Sandusky Mall - :55
Back to Fallen Timber Dr./Pioneer Trail and the route starts all over again.
The cost is $1 per ride. It runs Monday through Saturday. Children age 5 and under ride for FREE. No reservations needed. Hop on and hop off at the stops. The exact fare ($1 bills or correct change) is required. The bus drivers don’t make change so make sure you have the right amount of money in the correct denomination before you board the bus.
If this new transportation service is used, it could develop into something bigger and better than we thought was possible for our small urban area.
So, please stretch a buck and use the SPARC!
