Are you running a shuttle from Bentley?
The Council on Aging is generously planning to run a FREE shuttle again for us! They will be operating on a loop between Derby Square and Bentley School. Shuttles will likely be a little over 30 minutes apart. Please wear your mask while on the shuttle. In addition we highly recommend the Salem Skipper as an affordable transportation option. https://www.salem.com/mobility-services/pages/salem-skipper
