WEBXTRA: Pilot program offers expanded GoBus services in Wood County

GoBus held a public meeting Monday morning at Mineola City Hall to discuss the new services and to get input from residents.

GoBus is a rural, demand response transportation service that covers 14 East Texas counties ― or about 10,000 square miles. The service provides about 7,000 trips each month.

“It’s public transportation for everyone. You can go to the doctor. You can visit a friend. You can go get your hair cut,” Cure said.

The pilot program runs through April 2020. Cure said it will help GoBus determine what new services are needed and seek funding to sustain them in the future.
