AUSTIN, Minn.- SMART Transit is reaching a new milestone. Last week, the southern Minnesota company provided their 200,000th ride this year alone. They broke their record last year by 20,000.
They offer services in Freeborn, Mower, Steele and Waseca counties.
Kirk Kuchera, Operations Manager for SMART Transit, says they love having people depend on them for rides.
”A lot of people rely on us so we’re out there in the cold like today,” said Kuchera. “It’s really nice to know that we can get people where they need to go, like doctor appointments, work or wherever else.”
Kuchera says they are projecting to have given more than 220,000 rides by the end of the year.
