Scranton Giant shoppers can take free bus to Dickson City store

A temporary workaround has begun for Scranton grocery shoppers who relied on a Green Ridge Plaza store now closed due to fire damage.

Starting Tuesday, the County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) and Giant now offer free bus passes to residents who want to get from the Green Ridge Giant to their store in Dickson City.

Buses are scheduled to leave each hour from the Scranton store, 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and every other hour on Saturdays. Attendants at Giant Gas, 1600 Nay Aug Ave., have passes on hand.

Store management said Tuesday they don’t yet have a timeline for a reopening date at the Green Ridge Plaza location. Cleanup began immediately after the fire on May 20.

By midday on the first day of free transportation, attendants said they had given out about 10 bus passes.
