Ohio Loves Transit Week

February 8 - 12, 2021

 

 

The statewide Ohio Loves Transit Campaign kicks off on February 8th and will run through February 12th. This celebration is to recognize the vital importance of public transportation services for our community, especially for seniors and disabled individuals who face travel barriers and the isolation that comes with this.

 

Last year, as we have before, our Perry County Transit (PCT) served over 1,600 Perry County residents to access essentials: trips to the grocery store, to the pharmacy, to medical appointments, to social activities and more. Our PCT delivered a total of 40,000 rides with 781,000 miles of service benefiting the health and well-being of many in our community.

 

And we did this all during a pandemic without interruption.

 

But now we are adding the critical service of getting shut-ins, elderly, disabled and others in need to their vaccination appointments. In fact, several of our drivers have already been vaccinated because they are the first stop in a vaccination appointment as much as they would be if they were the first person you see in the doctor’s office. Having experienced this themselves, our Perry County drivers are proving to be a good partner in helping people overcome their anxiety we all have with doctors and needles!

 

So far, after only 1 week, 6 county residents have been transported to their vaccination appointments through a ride from PCT. One rider, Gloria from Crooksville, said about trip, “I used Transit for the first time for a ride to my local Health Department to receive my COVID vaccination. They showed up on time and the driver was very nice and made me feel comfortable. I’m really happy to being on my way to being safe.”

 

We’re looking forward to serving Gloria again on her trip for her second shot.

And since 1,600 residents depend on us for the essentials of good health, we are looking forward to being a big part of the campaign to vaccinate everyone in Perry County as soon as possible.

 

Maybe “Ohio Loves Transit”, but Perry County Transit is working hard this week and all this year to show how much we love Perry County.
