Ride Wheels2U Westport shuttle buses free Feb. 17 and 24 in observance of the President’s Day holiday.

WESTPORT — Ride free on Wheels2U Westport buses this Friday and next, per a President’s Day holiday “executive order” by the Westport Transit District.

The usual $2 fares for the on-demand shuttle buses — which provide rides to and from Westport’s rail depots weekday mornings and evenings — will be suspended Friday, Feb. 17, and again Friday, Feb. 24.

“We hope to make the Presidents Day vacation brighter for all,” Peter Gold, transit district director, said in announcing the promotion.

“Taking our convenient Wheels2U service between your door and the Saugatuck or Greens Farms train stations is the perfect way to go to New York City as part of a vacation staycation, to go shopping, visit a museum or take in a play, or just to visit friends and family.” For more information about the Wheels2U Westport service and its app, click here.
