The shuttle is free this summer due to the CARES Act funding that was received for CitiBus transit operations in Watertown.

Riders will be asked to wear face masks while on the bus and follow social distancing guidelines.

Buses will be limited to 20 riders each time and will serve on a first-come first-serve basis.

Children who are under 12 years old must be with an adult.

The shuttle will run as long as the pool is open. In the case of inclement weather, riders should call CitiBus to confirm pick up.

For any questions, call CitiBus at 315-785-7772.
