Due to the Bar Harbor parade, most routes will not run in the morning on July 4, 2016. There will be limited morning service on the Campground and Eden Street routes, plus one special inbound trip on the Southwest Harbor route.
     Because of the fireworks, only Campground and Blackwoods routes will operate in the evening of July 4. The evening of July 4, Campground buses will serve the Emerson-Conners School instead of the Bar Harbor Village Green. Evening Blackwoods buses will start and end at the ballfield.
