Changing demographics, user needs driving ridership increase

The picture you think of when you imagine the typical user of Door County Connect and Door 2 Door Rides is changing. The services are averaging approximately 3,900 rides each month, which is higher than the 3,500 rides monthly average last year. At this pace, Door County Connect and Door 2 Door Rides could hit over 46,000 in 2023, which would be close to the over 47,000 rides the services delivered in 2019. Transportation Manager Pam Busch says the trend that has been really encouraging is who is using the service. Before, Door County Connect and Door 2 Door Rides were primarily used by those 60 years and older and for medical purposes. Busch says they are now seeing younger people use the system for reasons of employment and for personal errands.

Door County Connect is available Monday through Friday beginning at 7:45 a.m. primarily in the Sturgeon Bay area starting at just $2.00 a ride. Door 2 Door Rides operates seven days a week with fares and hours varying on where you live.
