Chadron City Transit Celebrates Nebraska Public Transit Week


     This is Nebraska Public Transit Week and Chadron City Transit is joining with other local systems across the state to celebrate.

     Transit Director Julie Lawrence says each day has a special designation, all under the week-long theme of Hippy Week.

Lawrence says today and Thursday both offer free rides with the donation of a canned good to the Northwest Community Action Partnership Food Pantry.

Wednesday will be Driver Appreciation Day with everyone riding free, including some special riders to help the drivers understand how much they’re appreciated.

Lawrence says the final day of Public Transit Week will be a chance for everyone to learn more about Chadron City Transit and to get a free lunch.

Chadron City Transit is an on-demand system with residents calling or going online to order a pick-up. Rides are $1 for each segment.

      There are also passes offering 22 rides for $20 but with a ride being the roundtrip from the pickup location to one or more destinations and back to the starting point.
