Sunday bus service along the East End will be extended throughout the year starting Jan. 5, Suffolk County officials announced this week.

The S92 line, which runs from Orient Point to East Hampton, and the 10C that connects East Hampton to Montauk, will now offer year-round Sunday transportation services, County Executive Steve Bellone said Monday in a press release.

In addition to the two East End routes, which currently operate between Memorial Day and Columbus Day, six other county routes will also be extended, officials said.

“Providing additional transportation opportunities for Suffolk County will give residents who are in need of transportation on Sundays the opportunity to shop, attend church services, and get to work without having to rely on family or friends or just not having the opportunity to travel on Sundays,” Mr. Bellone said. “Investments in our infrastructure serve as economic development initiatives which will help to grow our economy and provide for a sustainable economic future.”
