SUMMER SHUTTLE Whether you are in town for one of the many summer happenings or if you just want to visit the beach, getting around Onset has never been easier. The Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) has teamed up with the Town of Wareham to provide the Onset Beach Shuttle! Park for free at Hynes Field (next to Chuck’s Auto), the lot across the street from Hynes Field (next to Lopes Playground), or at the Bay Pointe Club, and pay $1 per rider to take the shuttle, a 20-minute, four-mile loop around Onset. After 6 p.m., parking is free all across Onset except for at the Onset Town Pier. The shuttle will run from mid-June through Labor Day this year. It’s an experiment, so it may need to be tweaked

in the coming years, but it’s something that Jones is excited about. “Parking is a unique situation around here and we’re just trying to help out the local restaurants and beachgoers that have a hard time parking,” Jones explains. “Onset is becoming very popular and there’s plenty of parking for everyone – you just have to get creative.”

BEACH-SIDE BASHES So where can you go on the Onset Beach Shuttle? From June 26 through August 28 the “Summer of Love Concert Series” returns on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Lillian Gregerman Bandshell, 1 Union Avenue, where most of the summer happenings occur. It’s a popular event, drawing in as many as 1,000
