With Door 2 Door’s fate being in jeopardy, a Sturgeon Bay council member says public transportation needs to be a major point of discussion. District 6’s Seth Wiederanders says there needs to be an option for low-income residents without transportation to be able to get around. The Door 2 Door program has been giving rides to those people since 2009 but a big chunk of money is needed to keep D2D beyond 2019. Wiederanders says a good public transportation system would help everyone.
Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says about $180,000 would be needed in 2020 to keep D2D going.
