✰Fun Fact Friday✰
Did you know that through our partnership with the Wave Transit ILM, all our dogs receive quality bus training? Bus training is important to a dog’s training curriculum because it prepares them for any future bus rides with their clients. It is also confidence building training as our dogs navigate how to properly lay down on a bus, go over bumps, and hear the loud breaks. We are so grateful that the Wave transit system allows us to ride the busses with our Assistance Dogs In-Training.

Tuesday's paper bus model of the week!!
Tuesday's paper bus model of the week!!
Why are you cutting back service till 9 AM on Saturdays? Some of us have to be to work earlier than that and rely on the bus t get us there. Do we not matter anymore?
Does the downtown trolley not run during the week anymore? We were waiting to take our son and it never showed.
i hate this place
Bus driver 209 Independence is always rude. Every morning . I do not know her name.
Why does it take an hour just to get somewhere in this small town
Filed a formal complaint twice about the driver of the 103 refusing to stop at stops on Floral parkway. 2 weeks later and still heard nothing back. Why have stops if the drivers pick and choose which one they stop at.
Great idea!
My tempory dart van will expire on Sept 29th. I did my application and turned in in before the storm will wave do an extention on temporys
Im not sure the drivers understand how to stay in their own lane.
