Rockland: New BAT Bus Service in Town

Rockland residents will now be able to ride the “BAT” bus. The town is offering transportation services provided by Brockton Area Transit Authority, or BAT.

Rockland’s BAT service uses 14-passenger, handicapped lift-equipped buses that travel primarily on Union Street in Rockland between Monday and Friday with fixed-stop service at the Rockland Community Center, Signature Healthcare, Ocean State Job Lot and Quincy Avenue.

Stops will be marked by signs posted on telephone poles, but riders may also flag down BAT buses by raising their hands.

In addition to fixed-stop service, individuals may call BAT in advance to arrange pick up and drop off at the time of day and location of their choosing. Riders must call at least a day ahead of time to schedule these rides.

The Rockland service also connects with BAT’s #5 Route for an additional charge. This connection will take riders to the BAT Intermodal Transportation Center in Brockton where they can connect with all BAT routes.
