Any field of employment you are in isn’t it a thrill when the company gets new "stuff?"

How would you like to be a bus driver right now?

Here’s a new bus.

Not that a lot of us would be any good at it, but ever wonder what it would be like to "drive the bus?"

The Community Connector which serves the City of Bangor and the Greater Bangor region just received five brand-spanking-new buses.

The five buses were paid for with state and federal dollars.

So the next time you ride the bus in Bangor, Brewer, Veazie, Orono, Old Town or Hampden it could have that brand new vehicle smell. And not from an air freshener hanging off the rearview mirror.

With the new buses come updated schedules. Here’s where you can find routes and times plus days of service, some of which have changed.

Want to learn something pretty impressive? In the fiscal year 2020 Community Connector provided 628,805 passenger trips. And covered 690,487 vehicle revenue miles. Very impressive, and don’t worry, there’s no pop quiz.

Someday if you board a Community Connector bus and the driver looks familiar, maybe one more item on my bucket list has been checked off.
