To provide the most responsive service possible, a combination of 19 standard vans and wheelchair accessible mini-buses provide transit services Monday thru Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm to local senior nutrition sites, for essential shopping/errands, medical appointments, to the courthouse, the post office, etc. These vehicles also travel long distances to Denver or Colorado Springs for medical and other necessary appointments.
Cheyenne, Elbert, Kit Carson and Lincoln counties have a very sparse population compared to our large geographic area, thus making it impossible to support scheduled commuter buses and taxi services. Still, if you need help getting to the doctor or the grocery store, you probably can find that help in your community.
