Charlottesville Area Transit Free Trolley to detour


Beginning Monday, June 12, Charlottesville Area Transit will implement a long-term detour for the Free Trolley.

Construction on McCormick Road will prevent the route from serving bus stops between the McCormick Road Bridge and University Avenue.  The detour will last through Friday, August 11.<

To navigate around the construction, the Free Trolley will use the McCormick ramp to reach Emmet Street.  The route will then travel north on Emmet Street before making a right onto University Avenue.

A temporary bus stop will be installed on University Avenue near the Newcomb Road intersection. Passengers who typically board the bus at the Chapel should instead use the temporary bus stop.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
