New Park-n-Ride Facility Open

By: Chris Eversole

RTS opened its first official Park-n-Ride facility on Monday, Feb., 4 at the new Walmart Supercenter located off of NW 34th Street, just south of U.S. 441.

Commuters are allowed to park their vehicles in the designated park-n-ride area within the Wal-Mart parking lot and ride RTS Route 8 to the University of Florida and Shands.

Forty-three parking spaces are available, and there is no charge for using them.

“RTS receives a number of calls requesting park-n-ride facilities each year,” said Chip Skinner, RTS Spokesperson.  “We are excited to offer this service to those commuting into Gainesville for work and recreation.”
