Peak hour bus service may start on June 3


By PETER BOLTZ
Express Staff Writer

A peak hour bus service for the Wood River Valley, which would carry commuters three times in the morning and three times in the afternoon, may get its start on June 3.

The chief organizer of the service, Beth Callister of Wood River Rideshare, said bus companies wanting to provide the service have until April 17 to enter their bids with the Blaine County Commission.

Callister said she hoped a company would be selected by April 24.

Some of the criteria for service providers are a bus with a minimum of 40 seats, accommodations for skis and bikes, 12 months of service, and conforming with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Callister has proposed that the commuter bus service have three morning trips starting in south Bellevue at 6:15 a.m., 7:45 a.m. and 9 a.m. and ending in Elkhorn.

The morning run would have 11 stops between Bellevue and Elkhorn.

The three afternoon trips would start in Ketchum at 3:30 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. and end in south Bellevue.

The afternoon run would have eight stops between Ketchum and south Bellevue.

Anyone with the fare of $1.50 (one way) can ride once the service starts.

Monthly passes costing $50 and annual passes costing $550 are fare options offered.
