NEW CASTLE — A Croton bus route has been changed to include the Shenango Township Industrial Park.

Previously, the Croton Route 7 bus went to Hunter Lane twice every hour. As of Monday, buses leaving the New Castle Area Transit Authority’s central location at a quarter to each hour are turning left onto Frew Mill Road and proceeding to the Shenango Industrial Park. The first run, departing at 6:45 a.m., will arrive at the industrial park, at 7 a.m.

When the bus leaves the central location at a quarter after the hour it will go to Hunter Lane.

“We were made aware that employees at the industrial park needed transportation,” said Vicki Antonio, of the transit authority. “We added this route as a work bus for them.”

The final departure from the industrial park will be at 5:55 p.m. daily.

Antonio noted more information on this route and all others offered by the authority is available on the webside at
