This spring, the WSA worked with Middletown Area Transit to bring the M-LINK bus to campus on Saturdays. Starting May 3, the service has been expanded to weekdays, meaning it now stops at Wesleyan six days a week. This bus represents a regular, affordable option for students looking to get off campus without a car.
The bus stop is located at the corner of Williams and High Street. The bus heads to the Meriden train station (with Amtrak transfer to New Haven), Westfield Mall, and Wal-Mart, among other places. A one-way trip costs only $1.25 (but remember to bring exact change).
For more information on when the bus reaches the other stops visit: http://www.middletownareatransit.org/mlink.php. Please note the website has not yet been updated to include the Wesleyan stop, but the times for the other stops are accurate. You are encouraged to arrive five minutes early to the stop, and be patient since the bus may occasionally be running a bit behind schedule.
