  1. I’m new to town. I am staying on Etolin Way and am walking to SEARHC where I work. I Ann wondering if there is a bus I can take to get there instead. I see the green line goes there, but I am not a senior or disabled. If I can take the bus, please tell me where I can catch it.
    Thank you 🙂


    1. The blue the RIDE buses are our public transit buses, open to all ages and abilities. The white Care-A-Van buses are the ones for seniors and disabled. The RIDE’s closest pick-up point to Etolin Way is at the Crescent Harbor parking lot, and the Green Line stops there at 45 and 15 minutes after the hour (Green Line makes two runs in an hour, while the Blue and Red lines make one trip an hour). All of the buses meet at Crescent Harbor at 45 minutes after the hour, which allows for free transfers. The Blue and Red lines also connect at Sitka High School for more transfers. The one-way fare for adults is $2, and there are monthly passes and punchcards you can buy to extend your money a bit.


  2. Contact Sabrina Smith at Sitka Tribe of Alaska for info about the fixed-route blue buses (747-7103). Sandra Kowal is your contact at Swan Lake Senior Center for the Care-A-Van white paratransit buses (747-8617)
