Albany County to start a community bus service

Aug 26, 2011

Albany County officials will be providing bus service up and down Grand Avenue.  The free transportation will go from First Street to WalMart.  County Commissioner Tim Chestnut says it will feature eleven stops and will run until ten each night.  The service will be overseen by the University of Wyoming.  Chestnut says if the bus service is popular…they will try to expand it.“I think that is the hope so we could at least do a 3rd street route.  I was talking to Mark Collins, who is the head of UW Transportation, he would like us to do something from WalMart out to the airport. “Chestnut says they will eventually ask citizens to tax themselves to help pay for the service.  It starts on Monday.
