Hyde County Transit is back to giving Ocracoke islanders rides “up the beach” to Dare County as general transportation. The schedule takes islanders to Avon, Nags Head and beyond for doctors appointments and shopping.

This transportation service is free to anyone aged 60 years and older. For others, the fee is $3.20 to Avon and $5 for the Outer Banks trips. Outer Banks trips can include requested retail stops in the Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and the Nags Head areas.

To make a shopping reservation, call the Hyde County Transit office before noon of the scheduled day at 252-926-1637.

Below is the schedule for the next four months.
