The Door County Transportation Department is helping the public connect to places a little bit easier. The department announced on Monday that its former ADRC vans and Door 2 Door Rides vehicles would fly under the Door County Connect banner. The county has provided public transit services for over 10 years, but it has been confusing to some riders looking for a way to get where they want to go. Transportation Manager Pam Busch hopes this is the first step to connecting passengers with rides easier and quicker.
The Door County Connect services provided more than 35,000 rides in 2020, which was about 13,000 less than 2019. Busch says the numbers have started to build back up as people have gotten vaccinated and felt more comfortable traveling.
