TRANSIT CELEBRATES 24 YEARS IN SERVICE!
For twenty years, La Paz County Transit has provided transportation to all people who may not otherwise be able to get to where they need to go. While priority is given to the elderly, and disabled, anyone can use this transportation service. The transit operation has expanded over the years to cover Parker and the outlying areas of the county, including Salome, Wenden, Hope, and Ehrenberg. It has been a wonderful community resource that has helped people keep medical/dental appointments, get groceries and run errands.
In May 1996, the La Paz County Health Department was assigned the task of developing a transit system for La Paz County by Joan Bighead, Greg Upton, and Gene Fisher. We are still going strong. Services are funded in part by WACOG AAA/D.E.S., ADOT and donations.
