SHADY HILLS — Bus service to a number of popular destinations in north west and north central Pasco County kicked off last week when Pasco County officials cut the ribbon on the new Route 20 for Pasco County Public Transportation service.

The service covers much of the Shady Hills area including a stop at the Fasano Regional Hurricane Shelter where the route opening by various county officials took place on Monday.

Pasco County commissioner Jack Mariano said the new bus services would be a real help to local residents. “We know that transportation is a big concern for all of our citizens,” he said.

The route also will help commuters and others traveling north and south between Pasco and Hernando counties because it includes a stop at the Bayfront Health hospital in Spring Hill, the second such connection between Pasco and Hernando transit systems.

Some workers in the area couldn’t do a commute without that service, noted John Mitten, chairman of the Hernando County Commission. “We’re very excited about it in Hernando County,” he said.

Other stops along the route, with buses running every hour, include Fivay High School, Hudson High School, the Florida Department of Health in Pasco County and Premier Community Health Care.
