YEAR-ROUND BUSES OFFER NEW WAYS TO SAVE
Improved commuter service between Ellsworth and Bar Harbor eliminates more than one million vehicle miles a year from local roadways. It means cash savings for area workers, new job opportunities for people without cars, less congestion, and a reduction in greenhouse gases linked to global climate change.
Downeast Transportation provides popular year-round shopping trips to Ellsworth and Bangor, and in-town shuttle service for Bucksport, Ellsworth, and Bar Harbor. Downeast Transportation also operates the Island Explorer serving Acadia National Park and neighborhing towns from June 23 through Columbus Day.
"I get to work safely and on-time, and I save gas
and miles on my car."
"My driver is dependable and safe, and is better in
the snow than I am. The commute allows me to rest to and from work."
"I like it a lot because it allows me to get out and
about on my own."
"I might not go if I had to drive myself. Drivers are
wonderful. The bus is clean and comfortable."
"I like the friends, the ride, the drivers, getting
out, the route, the passing countryside."
