Getting around from here to there is something many of us take for granted. After all, there’s usually a car in the garage, a taxi company nearby, or even a ride sharing service available, right?
Only as our next guests knows if you are a person with disabilities, are elderly, have a low income and live in the rural counties of central South Dakota, it’s not as easy as all that. Ron Baumgart and Jess Marlow are with the non-profit River Cities Public Transit.
Together they work to help under-served people in 11 South Dakota counties get those rides from here to there, at a reduced cost to those involved. They’re here today to explain how it works and, more importantly, how you can help.
