Bus to connect downtown Salisbury with university

SALISBURY — A new bus service will better connect downtown Salisbury to the students at Salisbury University.

Bus service dubbed the Downtown Trolley will begin Thursday in the city.

The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that the bus service is funded through a $50,000 state grant, with an additional $16,000 from the city.

The bus, built to resemble a trolley, will run during the fall semester on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Fares will be $1 each way.

Officials hope the service will help build connections between the downtown and university communities.

More than 8,000 undergraduates and 600 graduates attend Salisbury.
