The Steuben Municipal Complex is a vital travel destination for local residents. Whether it's to purchase a clamming permit or dog license, attend a selectman's meeting, or pay your property taxes, you will always find cheerful staff on hand to help you navigate the intricacies of small-town municipal government. On weekends you'll find a stalwart team of volunteers next door, sorting and packing the week's accumulated recyclables at the nearby Recycling Center. (Feel free to jump in and lend them a hand!) And every summer, be on the lookout for the Steuben Volunteer Fire Department's annual chicken barbeque. A proposed pedestrian overpass across busy Route 1 may someday connect the station to Steuben's other town center, giving DRT travelers easy access to another one of the town's great community resources, the Henry D Moore Parish House and Library, as well as to RSU 24's Ella Lewis Elementary School and the Steuben Post Office (04680).

Station entrance: On the south side of the Steuben Municipal Complex.

Stationmasters: Julie Ginn and Joy Robinson

 
Tunk Google Maps

Popular among canoeists, kayakers, photographers, and birders, Tunk Stream is a nature-lover's paradise. From its headwaters in Maine's Donnell Pond Public Reserved Lands, it meanders gently through the towns of Cherryfield and Steuben, through marshes and densely wooded forests, past open fields and farmland, eventually reaching the ocean at Steuben's aptly named Joy Bay. Bring your kayak on the "D" and put-in at the landing adjoining Tunk Station for a day of paddling along this serene waterway. Or, if paddling isn't your thing, bring along your mountain bike, skis, or snowshoes, and spend a day exploring the 85 miles of trail along the Down East Sunrise Trail.

Station entrance: Under the bridge at Unionville Road, Steuben (Maine State Highway bridge #5447).

Stationmasters: Sarah Brandon and Jeff Beckley

Lubec lies at a remarkable geographical crossroads. Here the Downeast Fisheries Trail, the Ice Age Trail, and the Schoodic International Sculpture Trail all converge — and within a two-minute walk to the International Bridge that connects to Canada's Campobello Island. Bring a picnic and relax at nearby Stockford Park, overlooking the busy waterway between the USA and Canada. Or make a day of it by strolling through downtown Lubec, sampling the area's shops and fine seafood eateries.

To get across easily to the north side of town, just hop on the 'D and ride the train to nearby Lubec Main St. station.

Station entrance: On the east side of Lower Water Street, just south of Stockford Park, in Lubec's historic Brownville district.
