Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA) will start offering FREE bus travel to seniors on Tuesdays starting in July.

The two-year pilot program is called Senior Fare FREE Tuesday and will be available on fixed bus routes.

According to Brandy Pelletier with PVTA, the goals are to increase ridership and help seniors be more independent.

“With the increase in fares that we had, we heard a lot that seniors aren’t able to get out as much, because they can’t afford it. We also tried to incorporate it on the days that stores in the area have their senior discount, so that’s why we chose to do it on Tuesday.”

Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA) oversees and coordinates public transportation in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts. Currently the PVTA offers fixed-route bus service as well as paratransit service for the elderly and disabled.

PVTA was created by Chapter 161B of the Massachusetts General Laws in 1974. It is based in Springfield, Massachusetts and serves Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin counties.
