Grays Harbor Transit to offer free bus service for holiday shopping
ABERDEEN, Wash. – Grays Harbor Transit will offer free bus service for holiday shoppers again this year, the Authority’s board approved the schedule this week. Board President Jack Durney supported the service. “This is the time of year that helps a lot of businesses make it into the next year, and some of our revenue comes from sales tax so it looks like a good way to prime the pump.”
The Grays Harbor Transit Authority will offer free rides anywhere in Grays Harbor from December 18th through the 24th, However unlike previous years, the busses no longer run on weekends and will not be running on that weekend either.
General Manager Mark Carlin told the board at their last meeting that the lost revenue from offering the ‘free rides’ would be about $5,000 (mostly in quarters).
