A new transportation system in Allen County came one step closer to becoming a reality on Tuesday, though it continues to hang in limbo for the time being.

Jessica Thompson, director of development at Thrive Allen County, shared with commissioners Thrive’s recommendations regarding the proposed program and went over some of its finer details as well.

In short, the program will allow for transportation anywhere within the county for a small fare (e.g., $2 in Iola and $4 for anywhere else), and even to destinations outside the county within reasonable parameters.
