Social Services offers free bus rides for clients

November 14, 1995|By Ivan Penn | Ivan Penn,SUN STAFF

The Howard County Department of Social Services is offering free bus rides to its clients from Dobbin Center in east Columbia to the agency's new offices in the Gateway Industrial Park off Route 175.

As part of the service, the agency also will give rides to the County Government Gateway Building, where other county agencies that help low-income, elderly and disabled residents are housed.

The bus service -- offered through a contract between the social services department and the non-profit Urban Rural Transportation Authority -- began yesterday. It's available weekdays, excluding state holidays and the day after Thanksgiving.

URTA will pick up clients at the Dobbin Center ColumBus stop and carry them to social services and the County Gateway Building twice daily. The service will be evaluated for its need at the beginning of January.
