Nature Coast Transit begins bus service

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Nature Coast Transit wants to help Levy County residents get back to work. And if work is not where you live, even if it is in Gainseville, Trenton or points in between, NCT can help workers and prospective workers get there with federal help.

Desiree Painter, general manager of Nature Coast Transit, won the Levy County Board of Commissioners’ approval for grant applications to support the Job Access Reverse Commute program (JARC), which provides transportation for workers without adequate transportation and who need it to obtain job training, apply for jobs, get to job interviews, and to get to work.

While the program focuses on providing transportation for the elderly, disabled and impoverished — those living at 125 percent of poverty level income — the transportation is available for anyone who does not have transportation to get them to work.

“We want to serve whoever needs us,” Painter said.

Painter said the program is relatively new for rural counties, having been expanded in the past year beyond urban transportation areas.
