The City will celebrate the launch of its new GoGeo fixed-route and paratransit bus service with a ribbon cutting at noon Aug. 21 at the central transit hub at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St.
GoGeo has four routes serving Lone Star Circle of Care, Wolf Ranch, the Rivery, City Lights Theatres, Southwestern University, the Georgetown Recreation Center, apartment complexes and other locations. Service hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
Riders can use the bus at no cost for the first two full weeks of service, Aug. 21-Sept. 1. There will be no service Monday, Sept. 4, in observance of Labor Day.
An unlimited daily pass is $2 and an unlimited monthly pass is $30. Reduced fares are available for riders with ID who are disabled, veterans and active military, riders age 65 or older, or students. Children 12 and younger with a full-fare rider can ride for free. Monthly pass and credit card purchases can be made at the Public Library. Exact change is needed for a daily pass purchase on the bus.
GoGeo paratransit service in Georgetown for those who are disabled is scheduled by appointment. Go to GoGeo.Georgetown.org for information on applying for GoGeo paratransit service.
The transit system is funded by rider fares as well as funds from the City of Georgetown, Georgetown Health Foundation, and Capital Metro. To see routes and for more information, visit GoGeo.Georgetown.org.
