Prepare to Be Scared
The theater department at Provincetown Schools will be running a haunted house at the school on Sat., Oct. 28. The kid-friendly version runs from 3 to 5 p.m., while from 6 to 9 p.m. those who dare go should “prepare to be scared!”
Tickets are $13 at the door and support the theater program and the annual eighth-grade class trip. “Family pricing” is available so that larger families don’t have to drain their wallets to be scared out of their pants.
Bus Ride Numbers
The Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority provided annual ridership numbers to town staff at the end of September.
The Flex Bus that runs between South Harwich and Provincetown gave 98,962 rides in the 12 months that ended June 30. Of those one-way rides, 29,174 originated in Provincetown, almost one-third of the total.
The Provincetown shuttle, which runs to various stops in town and North Truro including the Adventure Bound and Horton’s campgrounds, gave 44,193 rides; two-thirds began in Provincetown.
The CCRTA’s new late-night and early-morning route supported 5,185 one-way trips between May and early October. Ridership was sufficient to renew the route next year, Assistant Town Manager Dan Riviello said, although the earliest route, which began at 4:40 a.m. in Eastham, had few takers and will probably be discontinued. —Paul Benson
