Door-Tran’s volunteer transportation services provided 25 percent more one-way trips in 2017 than in 2016 and 63 percent more than in 2015. “Our volunteer drivers have been very busy meeting the increased needs in our community. We are very thankful for their dedication,” said Kim Gilson, Door-Tran’s volunteer coordinator.
“Our focus for 2018 will on volunteer recruitment in order to continue meeting the increased needs in our community,” said Gilson.
Door-Tran wasn’t the only transportation service to see an increase in needs for Door County in 2017. The Senior Resource Center Bus/Van, Door 2 Door Rides, and the Sunshine House also saw increases from 2016. “Based on the numbers from these three organizations, it appears their combined trips also had an increase of more than four percent,” said Pam Busch, Door-Tran mobility manager.
