What People Say About Local Transit
“I used this service ….. for a client of mine from the States…….. the service was exceptional, the driver was very polite and knowledgeable, and the cost was reasonable. At one point, the driver waited for 45 minutes without additional charge. I would recommend this service, particularly for persons with wheelchair accessible needs.”

I feel I am doing something that is important for the community. It’s a job that you don’t only do for the dollar value and that is what I tell my peers.”
