About GATRA, FROM THE GATRA website: The Greater Attleboro-Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) was created in 1976 to develop, finance, and contract for the operations of mass transportation facilities and services within an ever-expanding area, which includes 26 diverse communities stretching from Southern Norfolk County and Northern Bristol County, all the way to the South Shore. Over the years, GATRA has had a long-standing tradition of providing quality transportation services that are geared to improve the quality of life and assist customers in becoming more transportation independent.
Today, GATRA oversees operations of fixed route bus services in the cities of Attleboro and Taunton, and the towns of Duxbury, Franklin, Kingston, Mansfield, Marshfield, Middleborough, North Attleboro, Norton, Plainville, Plymouth, Raynham, Seekonk, and Wareham. All 26 member communities have demand response (Dial-A-Ride) services for people with disabilities and seniors. In addition, GATRA plays a vital role in the provision of Commuter Rail service to Boston by providing shuttle services to MBTA stations in the towns of Bellingham, Franklin, Norton, Mansfield, Medway, Middleborough, and Pembroke.
GATRA now provides a shuttle to the Hanson commuter rail station Monday to Friday. See the brochure for the schedule and more information.
