NORFOLK, Neb. – North Fork Area Transit is announcing a new partnership with Pierce Public Schools for a new general public Tripper Service running between Hadar and Pierce.

According to North Fork officials, Pierce Public Schools approached 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 in locations where families have indicated interest. All Tripper services are developed based upon citizen requests and school start and dismissal times. The Pierce Tripper Route will only be in service on school days.

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

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