HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - In most large cities, you can hop on and off the bus and get where you need to be in just minutes. But in Hazard, you have to call three days in advance if you need a ride.
"People have to call into our call center here in Hazard and schedule a pick-up and drop-off," says Chief Operating Officer at LKLP Robin Gabbard.
Now LKLP has partnered with the city of Hazard to make public transportation more accessible.
"We are really excited to be offering a free in-town route," said Gabbard.
Whether you need to run errands or simply go back and forth to your job, for the next three months you can ride the LKLP buses at no charge.
"So what we are trying to identify is, if there is a dedicated route in the city of Hazard, would people utilize public transportation more often," added Gabbard.
The pilot period for the routes will begin on July 8th.
