For many living on the lower end of the Eastern Shore, when the route, which had provided bus service to areas such as Bayview and Cheapside, was discontinued in 2010, basic access to services such as medical, not to mention just getting to Food Lion, became a chore, especially for the elderly and underserved segments of our community. With STAR Transit bringing its YELLOW line back in service, it is now possible to travel from lower Northampton County to Chincoteague, all for the low price of $1.50.The Yellow Route, probably the best deal in town, will run 6:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday to Friday (except for 6 major holidays). The Yellow line will have three repeating connecting loops, all starting and ending at the Food Lion (Cape Charles) shopping center.
Children under 4 ride for free. For the rest of us over 4, the fare is an incredible $.50.
The Yellow serves Cape Charles, Cheriton, Cherrystone Camp Grounds, Fairview, Cheapside, Capeville, Townsend,Kiptopeke State Park and the Sunset Beach.
