WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - A free shuttle that carried passengers from the Colonial Williamsburg Regional Visitor Center to Jamestown, Yorktown, Busch Gardens and Water Country is being discontinued.

The service connecting Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown began in 2005.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation assumed the financial and operating responsibility for the bus service to Jamestown and Yorktown in 2012. It had been funded by a federal grant to the National Park Service until the end of 2011.

But the foundation said this week that it's not feasible to continue the service in the future given its other priorities and financial pressures.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Colonial Williamsburg will continue to provide bus transportation between the visitor center and various locations in the Historic Area.
