Lawrence commuting

New car-sharing program available downtown
July 18, 2013
Thanks to a new car-sharing program in downtown Lawrence, residents now have a new option for getting around without using their own vehicle. The silver Kia Optima now stationed in the city parking lot on the west side of New Hampshire Street near Eighth Street is available for any resident to reserve and drive at an hourly rate, through a program run by the Hertz car rental company.

Bus hub move doesn’t greatly affect riders
July 17, 2013
Today was the first day for the Lawrence Transit’s transportation hub to operate on the 700 block of Vermont Street instead of at it’s former New Hampshire street location. Despite some concerns from riders about a need for benches and shelters to be installed at the Vermont Street hub, most passengers were pleased with the way the City informed riders of the move.
