Provisional date set for the reopening of the transit service
As North Fork Area Transit concludes its fundraising campaign, plans to reopen are in full force. The transit agency has adopted a smaller service model that will provide those services the public needs most, including TeleLift advance rides that offer outside pickup and drop-off.
The provisional reopening date is set for Monday 3 April. The modified ForkLift bus routes will be reintroduced at a later date.
The Nebraska State Mobility Management Team, along with board members, is conducting recall interviews with former employees, developing operating procedures and overseeing vehicle maintenance.
“We are working to restore service as quickly as possible. The fundraising part was a huge undertaking and it took a couple of weeks to finalize all the deposits and start issuing payments to previous vendors,” said Corinne Donahue, senior planner at the State Mobility Management Team.
“We are very excited to see passengers on our buses again and want to do everything we can to ensure they have a positive experience with every aspect of our services,” said Lacy Kimes, vice president of the North Fork area council.
The transit agency will operate from its former headquarters located in the northwest corner of the Norfolk Senior Center, along with its coach garage at 222 N. 4th St., Norfolk.
