YORK-Williamsburg Area Transit Authority (WATA) is looking to expand its services to lower York County along Route 17.
WATA recently received a grant to establish a new demonstration route, which will serve as an extension of its existing fixed-route service. The new route will be funded through a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Grant.
The new demonstration route, which will initially run for a three-year period, is expected to begin in spring of 2022 and will include various stops along the Route 17 corridor from the York-Poquoson Courthouse to the Yorktown Walmart. Once the three-year period ends, WATA will review whether to continue or terminate the route.
