DATTCO, a bus service provider, recently announced that it will discontinue its New Bedford-Boston route due to its financial struggles. The decision will take effect on April 16. Despite efforts to reduce operating costs and increase fares, the company was unable to find a cost-effective solution for its passengers. The announcement was met with criticism from New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell, who said that the company gave residents short notice to find alternative transportation options. The city is now working with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation to address the situation.
