Imagine having a bus when you want it.
Imagine owning more than one bus at a fraction of the cost of a single vehicle.
That’s what bus sharing gives you.
Many agencies struggle to fund the purchase and operation of a vehicle that sits unused most of the time. Most agencies that own buses use them on average between 4 and 10 hours per week. The rest of the time it sits idle, depreciating, and you are still paying insurance, parking/storage, maintenance, and so on.
With bus sharing, member agencies (seniors’ or other community organizations) collectively own a fleet of buses that each agency may use on a per hour basis. Owning buses jointly lets you put your money and resources into doing what you like to do best–serving your patrons and connecting your communities.
You pay a simple hourly rate and the rest is taken care of.
