PORT TOWNSEND: Columbia Pictures to pay for bus service during filming

PORT TOWNSEND — Jennifer Lopez won’t be the only one treated like a Hollywood star when filming for the movie “Enough” comes to town June 12.

Port Townsend residents will be able to get free door-to-door transit service between downtown and any point in the city during days filming takes place.

Columbia Pictures, the company filming “Enough” will foot the bill for the added service, which will be provided by Jefferson Transit, said Jennifer Dunne, the location manager for the movie.

The company hopes the service will help reduce downtown traffic and congestion during filming, which is expected to last until June 19.

“We’re trying to work with everyone to make it as livable as possible during the filming,” Dunne said. “We don’t want anyone to get upset about parking issues.”
