Door County Connect introduced their new free Wednesday ride-share service in May, the Connector Link, and are urging you to hop on to get around Sturgeon Bay. The mini-bus used for transportation hasn’t been as full as they would like, but they do feel like more awareness of the service will help boost the number of patrons. One reason given for the number of open seats on the vehicle still is that there is uncertainty about where the route will take them or how long they may be on the bus. Door County Transportation Manager Pam Busch suggests you take a ride when you have some free time, even if they're not making a stop you need that day.
Door County Connect also hopes that the service gets heavier use once the ADRC building fully opens for lunch. The capacity for the mini-bus is 14 in most cases, but for now, the capacity is at four passengers with a same-household exception.
The Wednesday service is also convenient for the five percent discount senior citizens get at its grocery stops, including helping riders get up to four grocery bags onto the bus. It also makes it a point to stop at common senior residential spots at lunchtime. Route stops are marked and you can view the schedule below.
