Fair shuttle a big success


Staff report



GREENVILLE- The City of Greenville & Greenville Transit System (GTS) again offered Greenville residents The Darke County Fair Park & Ride shuttle service.

“The word is finally getting out that you don’t have to fight the fair traffic, you don’t have to pay to park or walk a long distance, but instead you can park at the Greenville Municipal building or the Darke County Offices on Wagner Avenue and be dropped off right at gate #3 for a mere $1 a person,” said Pamela Garland, GTS director.

GTS provided 1,477 rides safely to and from the 2015 fair. This is an increase of 4 percent over last year. GTS provides wheelchair accessible vehicles and is a public transportation service open to the public. MV Transportation, Inc. provides the day-to-day operations.

“The drivers and staff did a fantastic job and the city and MV received many compliments on the service,” said Garland. “This service has been provided since 2003 and has continued to grow each year. Thank you to Greenville City Council and the city administration for supporting public transportation in our community.”

“If you used this fair shuttle service or you use the regular GTS service, please call or write your Greenville City Council members and let them know how important GTS is to our community,” encouraged Garland.

To ride GTS, please call 547-1811.
