We'd looked at either putting together the old trolley route or running a bus up Route 1, across 101, down Ocean Blvd, and back up 286 to improve mobility and access to business. We had the bus and a driver available, but the Selectmen balked at the cost of fuel.
The 13 miles route would have taken just over half an hour and cost less than one dollar per passenger for fuel, assuming only 20% utilization. Collecting $5 for a day pass or $2 each way would have made the Town money, but they never did it.
