On Wednesday the Village Casino, Southern Tier Brewery, Arthur R. Gren Co. Inc. and the Chautauqua Area Regional Transit System (CARTS) announced the launching of the “Getting Home Safe from the Point.”
The program is a transportation service that allows area residents and visitors to safely get home after enjoy an evening of entertainment and drinking in Bemus Point.
According to County Executive Vince Horrigan, From June 24 through August 13, CARTS buses will have two runs every Friday and Saturday. The buses will pick up individuals outside of the Village Casino in Bemus Point, at 11:30 p.m. and again at 1 a.m. The service is free and will drop off riders directly to their homes or hotels in the Bemus Point, Mayville, Lakewood, or Jamestown areas.
Chautauqua County Sheriff Joseph Gerace was also on hand and said that he fully supports the weekend transportation service program.
Funding for the program is expected to be provided by the sponsoring businesses and won’t come from county tax payer money.
