Employees who work in Dublin’s Metro Place Office Park will receive free transportation to and from their favorite lunch spots every Tuesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting July 23, 2019. This service is provided courtesy of the Metro Data Center, which provides 100Gb broadband connectivity to office buildings throughout Dublin and the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center, both located at 565 Metro Place South in Dublin.
The lunch shuttle is driven by SHARE Microtransit, a Columbus-based mobility service. It is the newest addition to the City of Dublin’s Workforce program. The Dublin Circulator began in January 2019 and provides no-cost transportation options for seniors and commuters in the area.
“Dublin’s Metro Place offers many excellent amenities for tenants including ‘Dublink 100Gb’ broadband connectivity and easy access to I- 270. We believe the Lunch Shuttle will be a great way to attract and retain tenants and high quality employees to Dublin,” said Rob Kopp, Metro Data Center President.
SHARE is operating the transportation service, offering professionally trained drivers, free WiFi and a comfortable riding experience in 14 passenger Ford Transit 350 vans.
The Dublin Lunch Shuttle will pick up in front of the 565 Metro Place South building and will make continuous 20-minute loops according to the following schedule:
- Perimeter Center – drop off in front of Chipotle
- Avery Square – drop off in front of Buffalo Wild Wings
- Dublin Plaza – drop off in front of Kroger
