For the 2018 Alive After Five®, don’t worry about traffic or where to park—TAKE THE FREE SHUTTLE!
It picks up and drops off at the St. Joseph’s College NY and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel parking lots continuously from 5 to 11 p.m. on June 28, July 19, August 2 and August 16.
Alive After Five® solutions
The Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce Alive After Five® committee has come up with a few solutions to both ease parking frustrations and mitigate traffic issues.
According to executive director of the chamber, David Kennedy, additional parking will be available at the Mt. Carmel Church located on North Ocean Avenue as well as a shuttle, in addition to last year’s trolley at St. Joseph’s College parking lot, to shuttle those who park at the church.
Both shuttles, he explained, will also be full-sized buses to accommodate about 50 passengers rather than the trolley, which only held about 30 people.
“We hope this will alleviate the parking and traffic burden of residents north of Main Street,” he said.
