Watertown Area Transit offers curb-to-curb service. The transit bus will pick you up at the curb of the requested location and drop you at the requested destination location curb.
Please be ready and watching for the bus. The bus will arrive within 15-30 minutes of your appointment time. The distance of travel involved usually requires at approximately 15 minutes of travel time from your residence to the destination location in order to arrive promptly at the scheduled time.
The bus drivers plan for and try to operate an efficient and prompt service on daily routes. Therefore it is important that riders be ready and waiting during this window of time out of courtesy for all riders and the bus driver. Buses will not be able to wait extended periods of time as this will make each subsequent trip late for scheduled appointments.
A return trip will need to be serviced later as route schedules permit.
