Our core values state that “Citizens need to move easily throughout the town, so town government will provide a variety of options.” We will use our Parks and Recreation bus for this shuttle, so please look for this vehicle on Saturdays.

There is no charge for this service. Pets and children requiring some type of car seat will not be permitted.

“We’ve had citizen inquiries about the town offering a local shuttle service after the success of our trolley service during Christmas in Davidson and the April is for Arts Gallery Crawl,” said Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming. “The “Saturday Shuttle” is a pilot program to offer this kind of service.” 

We are interested in feedback on the service, including stop locations and hours of operation. Please direct all inquiries to Kim Fleming at kfleming@townofdavidson.org.
