          Is there a cost for the shuttle bus service? And Where does it go?

          Response from MikeATthePA | Property representative |
          Hi Natalie - We provide a Free shuttle service to and from the bus terminals in town (of which there are two) between the hours of 8am and 9pm. All that we ask is that you pre-book it.
