SCCOOTin' around town.
Since 1999, when the Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC) along with local transportation advocates identified the need to provide dependable public transit in southern Chester County, nearly 250,000 commuters have benefitted from the SCCOOT bus. Ridership has grown steadily, peaking in 2008 when gas prices skyrocketed. Now, with an economy that has remained persistently sluggish, public transit is more critical than ever as individuals and families with limited incomes seek access to employment opportunities and services across southern Chester County. The SCCOOT bus provides all-day service from Oxford to Longwood Village and limited service to West Chester, Monday through Saturday. The bus operates primarily along Route 1 and makes stops at or near some of the largest employers in southern Chester County including the many mushroom farms throughout the corridor. More information on the bus, along with a complete schedule can be obtained by contacting TMACC at 610/993-0911 or through the Web site, www.tmacc.org
