Free Luxury Shuttle Service Starts Saturday, July 7th
Posted Date:
7/5/2018

Riverhead residents and guests are invited to participate in a free luxury shuttle service making stops all along the North Fork from Riverhead to Greenport on the new North Fork Link.

“The Link” is your free ticket to hop on and hop off, at various locations throughout the North Fork. Every Saturday this summer, July 7th through August 25th, the North Fork Link will transport guests up along Main Road and Sound Avenue from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

Riverhead Supervisor Laura Jens-Smith says “The North Fork Link takes the best of what our Town has to offer, and makes it more accessible to residents and visitors alike. Not only will this take cars off our busy roads, it will also make Riverhead businesses easier to visit. It’s one of the creative solutions the Town is focusing on to relieve the ongoing traffic issues residents struggle with all too often.”

“The Link” will pick up and drop off passengers every thirty minutes at thirty different stops such as village shopping districts, craft breweries and wineries, markets, restaurants, artisans’ workshops, farm stands, and museums.

Pick up points include popular businesses from Riverhead to Greenport, making exploring the North Fork easy for residents and guests. The Riverhead LIRR train station is also on the route, helping visitors get in plenty of fun in Riverhead without having to bring their cars.

Download the free North Fork Now app to track the luxury shuttle in real time and get set to enjoy the North Fork. The North Fork Link runs Saturdays July 7th through August 25th with arrivals every 30 minutes from 11:00 AM until 7:00 PM!  It’s free, it’s fun and it starts rolling this Saturday!

Thank you to the North Fork Promotion Council and the NYS Empire State Development grant that funds this project to alleviate increased traffic on the North Fork.
