Public Transportation


Mission; The stated intent of Hooker County Public Transportation is to provide service to the Hooker county area on a demand responsive basis. Additionally, the van is available for up to three trips per week to North Platte, based on the approved priority usage. May 2, 2017 through December 26, 2017 a Tuesday trip with a scheduled stop in Tryon will be added with the option to pick up riders from McPherson County. Additional trips may be scheduled by the Driver with adequate notice of a priority use. Priority use includes non-emergency medical visits, access to benefits and services not available within the county, and access to commercial outlets. Once per month, a trip to Valentine, Alliance, or Broken Bow may be scheduled if there is adequate demand, and the fees will be assessed as noted below. While we allow trips to these destinations to be made with appropriate need and notice, we feel that more than three trips per week to destinations outside of Hooker county would conflict with our goal to provide service within the county.
