County commissioners supportive of GoBus Stop

RED THOMPSON, JR.
Staff Writer


The idea of having a GoBus Stop in Vinton County was discussed Monday, Sept. 24, when Jackson-Vinton Community Action Mobility Manager Tammy Riegel met with the Vinton County Commissioners.

Riegel told The Telegram she went to the commissioners to see if they would favor the idea. She noted they were in support of the plan and she is going to contact GoBus to see if they would want to serve the county.

Currently, the GoBus travels from Athens to Cincinnati as a popular local route and makes a stop in Jackson. On this route, there are students from Cincinnati riding back and forth to Ohio University. On the Columbus route, the nearest stop to Vinton County is Logan.

Riegel pointed out that the GoBus has become a regional bus company and there are many routes where a proposed Vinton County stop could be created.

The GoBus operation has grown, and some of their destinations include the Columbus Airport, the Cleveland Clinic, and the Cincinnati attractions. She also stated in Columbus, riders can transfer to the COTA buses and get to locations all over the city and catch the late bus home.

Commissioner Mark Fout stated this is a good idea and if it can help people with travel needs in a cost-efficient way, he would be for a stop being created.

Riegel indicated she will contact the GoBus Organization and see if they are interested in coming to Vinton County. For more information on the GoBus and the communities they serve, log onto ridegobus.com.
