Cape Cod RTA Considering Expansion of Sealine Bus Route

FALMOUTH –Two new bus stops in Falmouth are being considered by the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority.

The current sealine service runs from Hyannis to Woods Hole, but Falmouth Selectmen want to include stops at the Falmouth District Court and the hospital.

Selectman Megan English-Braga said that walks around town, including the 0.8 mile walk from the courthouse to the Route 28 at Jones Road bus stop can be challenging in cold or inclement weather.

“We have some really distinct facilities and services that are available in our town so it’s great to have that transportation available to individuals,” said English-Braga. “I think it’s a huge increase in services for people in town.”

Town officials were also told that the Cape Cod RTA is looking to modify the WHOOSH trolley service, which is a seasonal trolley that runs from Woods Hole to the Falmouth Mall.

“It’s just another support to Falmouth employment and economic development,” said Selectmen Chair Susan Moran.

Selectmen took a no vote on the formation of a transportation committee but noted that such a group could help the town better look at traffic flows and what could be done to mitigate traffic increases.
