Rural Transit Day July 16.

DID YOU KNOW?????

Tomorrow, July 16, happens to be Rural Transit Day. This is a day for agencies to highlight their dedicated staff and wonderful passengers.

Meet Susanne and just a few of the individuals she transports daily. She has served her Blackfoot community since 1998 driving for PRT. This makes 23 years!!! Her passengers use rural transit to get to necessary medical appointments, employment, see friends, grocery shopping, and life skills training…just to name a few.

Thank you Susanne for your lifetime of dedicated service to your community. Thank you to the diverse and dynamic passengers riding Pocatello Regional Transit in our rural communities.

Be sure to stay connected with PRT social media. Over the next few weeks we will highlight staff and passengers. Everyone has a story. We are excited to share a few with you.

We encourage all community members to take advantage of using bus services to independently travel within our community. During the summer months those 18 years and younger are able to travel for free with the Summer Youth Pass. Pocatello Ross Park Aquatic Complex is a great location for a hot weather day trip.

Local youth ages 18 and younger can catch a ride from Pocatello Regional Transit (PRT) at no cost starting June 1.

Over the summer months, area youth can ride a PRT bus anywhere in the fixed route system at no cost with a Summer Youth Pass. Fixed routes are the routes that serve Pocatello and Chubbuck.

“This is a great opportunity for youth to become confident in riding public transit before having a driver’s license and hopefully afterward,” said Skyler Beebe, Pocatello Regional Transit Director. “The passes help our youth have access to safe and reliable transportation to amenities across Pocatello and Chubbuck.”

Passes can be obtained starting Monday, May 24 during business hours at:

Pocatello Regional Transit Center – 5815 South 5th Ave.
Community Recreation Center – 144 Wilson Ave.
Marshall Public Library – 113 South Garfield Ave.
Ross Park Aquatic Complex – 2901 South 2nd Ave. (starting May 29)
Zoo Idaho – 2900 South 2nd Ave
Portneuf District Library – 5210 Stuart Ave. (Chubbuck)

Per President Joe Biden’s executive order (https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2021/01/26/2021-01859/promoting-covid-19-safety-in-domestic-and-international-travel), masks/face coverings are required to ride Pocatello Regional Transit buses.

Riders must present the pass to PRT drivers to ride fare-free.

The Summer Youth Pass program will run from June 1 through August 21.

The Summer Youth Pass debuted in 2019 and the pass offered youth the ability to ride from any PRT stop to the Marshall Public Library and lower Ross Park, including Zoo Idaho and the Ross Park Aquatic Complex, for free. In 2020, it was expanded to include all fixed routes in the PRT system. Since its inception, 4,933 trips have been taken by youth riders utilizing the program.

Additionally, PRT’s “D” Route will make the switch to its summer schedule June 1. The route will discontinue service to Bartz Field on the Idaho State University campus and instead stop at Lower Ross Park including the Ross Park Aquatic Complex, Zoo Idaho, and the Skate Park. The D Route will switch back to its regular schedule August 23.

THEY NEED TO REMIND THE AFTERNOON E ROUT DRIVER NOT TO TURN ON THE STEREO I DON'T WANT TO HERE RUSH SCREWBALLS LYING MOUTH !!!
I had to take the car to Sun Power for repairs, but needed a ride home while they work on it? I called PRT and the friendly person at the other end gave clear instructions for getting back home. Better than Ruby Slippers!
Sloppywet day outside. Thankfully, with courteous C route drivers, the wait time is short. Oh, did I mention: Bench Rd to ISU in 20 minutes and no hassles at the ISU parking fiasco!
Snowy roads? Minimal parking at ISU? Consider PRT. On time, cheap and convenient!
How much are your bus passes for senior citizens?
#ridePRT
Are you doing the tour of lights this year? If so what days? Thank you
With cuts looming at the federal level, it is more important than ever that we let our local officials know that we love our PRT! Thank you PRT for providing a great service to the community!
