“Ellsworth on the move”


Ellsworth is served by several public transit companies, the largest of which is Downeast Transportation. Downeast Transportation offers Monday-Friday commuter and mid-day service to Bar Harbor, Monday-Friday student commuter service to Blue Hill, a twice a week in town shuttle as well as twice a week “shopping trips” to Bangor which provide approximately four hours in the city. They also offer bus lines that terminate in Ellsworth. However generally speaking their services are limited.
