Stop changes at Mansfield Senior Center and Juniper Hill – Effective May 6, 2019

WRTD recently acquired several longer buses for their fixed routes. Unfortunately these buses cannot safely serve the existing bus stop location at the Mansfield Senior Center.

The following changes will go into effect on Monday, May 6, 2019:

  • New stop location – Maple Road next to crosswalk and Wright’s Way intersection (Permanent change)
  • New stop order – The bus will now stop at the Senior Center BEFORE going to Juniper Hill. It will not stop when travelling back. (Permanent Change)
  • Additional stops – Juniper Hill will be served every time Mansfield Senior Center is served (so the bus can safely turn around). (Temporary Change)

For more information, please refer to our bus posters – Mansfield Senior Center and Juniper Hill.
