NORFOLK, Neb. – North Fork Area Transit announces a new partnership with Pierce Public Schools for a new consumer Tripper service between Hadar and Pierce.

According to North Fork officials, Pierce Public Schools contacted North Fork Area Transit for assistance with student transportation due to a shortage of bus drivers.

The new Pierce Tripper route will have bus stops at locations where families have shown interest. All of Tripper’s services are developed based on citizen requests and school start and end times. The Pierce Tripper route will only operate on school days.

All passengers on the Tripper service must register by contacting the North Fork Area Transit office.

“We are thrilled to partner with Pierce Public Schools to be a solution to transit needs in our surrounding communities,” said Jeff Stewart, Executive Director of North Fork Area Transit.
