* Linking employees and employers
* Building community

What is ahead?
* Aging population
* Increasing fuel prices
* Climate change
* Economic pressures
=MORE DEMAND FOR COMMUNITY TRANSPORTATION!

Between 2001 and 2011 we provided a significant increase in services.

Between 2001 and 2011 our ridership soared from 68,000 to 160,000 rides. Key factors to this growth are an aging population, increasing fuel prices, climate change and economic pressures.

Our fleet, staff and pool of volunteer drivers has also grown to keep up with demand. But we are still operating out of the same space, with no in-house vehicle maintenance or storage. We are in the final phase of fundraising for a dedicated transit headquarters that will allow us to better serve the customers we have and plan for future service enhancements.
