Grant means Stanley residents now have public transportation

Posted:

Stanley (WQOW) - Residents in the city of Stanley now have a new option when it comes to getting around town.

Clark County received a federal grant in January which allows its public transportation to continue. In order to qualify for the grant, it needed to include service to a city of over 2,500 people. That's where Stanley comes in. The agreement means Stanley residents can now call a taxi service to schedule a ride.

"We're excited that, for some of our seniors or for some of our people who are just not confident driving, that this will be an excellent alternative for them to get around and do their errands, whether its to the doctor or shopping," said Jeanne Gates, Ward 2 Alder person in Stanley.

This is the first time a taxi service has been available for Stanley residents. The rides are on a first come, first serve basis five days a week. It costs $5 for adults and $3 for senior citizens.
