Tri-Valley Opportunity Council, Inc. along with Tri-Valley Transportation is excited to announce that T.H.E. Bus now offers new in-town services and guaranteed routes throughout its service area.
In-town services that have been utilized in communities have been expanded. Towns that now receive this service include Hallock, Karlstad, Warren, Hendrum, Halstad, Ada, and Twin Valley. T.H.E. Bus will run in these communities on certain days of the month to help residents with transportation needs. Guaranteed routes are now available each month as well. A guaranteed route means it will run no matter how many people have scheduled a ride. Passengers that can utilize these routes will have peace of mind knowing that they will be able to get to their destination no matter the number of riders.
Also available to riders in May are two “Special Trips”. On May 16, T.H.E. Bus will take riders to Honker Flats Green House in Middle River. On May 20, T.H.E. Bus will take riders to Bergeson’s Nursery in Fertile.
