SWITA OFFERING SUMMER BUS SERVICE FOR YOUR CHILD
(ATLANTIC) Southwest Iowa Transit Agency is offering a safe, reliable, and affordable way to get your kids to their summer activities.
Steve Andersen, Transit Director at SWITA, says the summer bus service will take your child to any pre-approved location within two miles of city limits between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
“We’re really looking forward to stepping it up a little bit knowing that gas prices are higher than ever,” said Andersen. “Every mile that someone drives in their own car does make a difference and the way that we make it work is by having several kids on the same bus, we can combine those miles and cut down and offer it at a pretty affordable rate.”
Andersen said the cost is 10 rides for $20, 20 rides for $30, 1 month of unlimited rides for $40, or get an entire summer of rides for $100. The first 50 people to sign up with get the services for the month of May for free.
To sign up, stop by the SWITA office at 1501 SW 7th Street in Atlantic.
