UW students get free transportation for Thanksgiving
The Wind River Transportation Authority will provide a Thanksgiving bus to University of Wyoming students to ensure public safety while on vacation.
According to County10On Tuesday, November 23, at noon, a bus will leave the University of Wyoming Union for City Market in Rawlins before also making stops at the Wyoming Department of Transportation in Lander, as well as the WYDOT in Riverton.
To help promote travel safety, UW students can take advantage of the free service. As the service is based primarily in Fremont County, students from other destinations are encouraged to arrange for pickups at these locations for shorter trips to their final destination. In order to reserve a seat on the bus, students must call the Wind River Transit Authority in advance at 307-856-7118. They also posted the ad on their social media:
The bus is scheduled to return on Sunday November 28 when it picks up the UW students for the return trip from WYDOT to Riverton at 8 a.m., then to Lander WYDOT for its next student pickup, then finally to Rawlins City Market where it should arrive around 11 am. In a statement, the Wind River Transit Authority said:
WRTA decided to provide the bus in response to several serious car accidents involving students on Thanksgiving trips. We are pleased to provide this necessary service to the public.
During the holidays, this is certainly a great way to encourage safe travel for students during this time. For all UW students looking for a free and safe ride, be sure to call and reserve your spot now!
