In Massachusetts, Wynn Resorts Limited has reportedly announced that it hopes to attract even more patrons to its soon-to-open Encore Boston Harbor integrated casino resort by introducing a free shuttle service as well as a ‘robust water transportation system.’
Minimal parking space:
According to a Monday report from The Republican newspaper, the $2.6 billion development for the Boston suburb of Everett is scheduled to begin welcoming guests from June 23 but will only feature a parking garage capable of holding around 2,900 vehicles. As a result, Wynn declared that ‘parking at the resort will be limited’ and see many customers required to leave their automobiles off-site.
The Las Vegas-headquartered casino operator reportedly stated that the envisioned water taxi service for its Encore Boston Harbor venue hopes to exploit ‘low-profile European-style boats’ so as not to interfere with the many drawbridges on the Mystic River and transport revelers to and from its coming 33-acre development utilizing multiple waterfront locations.
Regarding the planned complimentary shuttle service, Wynn Resorts Limited explained that it wants to employ 58-seat buses in order to run circular routes between its forthcoming Boston-area property and the Malden Center and Wellington stations of Boston’s Orange subway line. The operator detailed that these wheelchair-friendly vehicles should become active from this summer before later being joined by a bike-share program.
Robert DeSalvio, President for Encore Boston Harbor, used an official Friday press release to disclose that he is planning an around-the-clock shuttle connection for the Wellington subway stop and foresees the service for its Malden Center compatriot running for at least 19 hours a day beginning from 5 o’clock every morning.
DeSalvio’s statement read…
“The new Orange line shuttles provide a luxury ride to and from our front door with service frequent enough to meet the needs of any guest. We encourage everyone to take advantage of these and the other shared transportation options to make the most of their visit to the resort.”
