Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Capital Transit is back in operation in the downtown area and has resumed its Ride Free Zone service there.
The service was discontinued for about a year due to the construction at the Capitol Building and on South Franklin Street.
City Hall says in a press release that riders can once again access bus service on Franklin, Fourth and Main Streets.
There are four stops in the Ride Free Zone including the Marine Parking Garage; on Franklin Street near the old Pocket Park; on Fourth Street near Rainbow Foods; and the Downtown Transit Center.
Denise Guizio of Capital Transit says it’s a free option for locals and tourists who may experience mobility issues or are interested in getting to the Capitol, the Juneau-Douglas City Museum, the Dimond Courthouse, the hostel or other locations at the top of the hill.
