Our new bus

Staff members with the new shuttle bus

Our new shuttle bus arrived! It could not have arrived at a better time. Our old vehicle, a 1998 Ford van, has been showing its age. Transportation is an integral and important daily activity enabling the entire Room at the Inn program to work smoothly.

“A new vehicle is long past due! The entire staff has gone above and beyond to keep the old van in working order but its time had come,” said Peggy Slater, interim executive director. “One of the best features of the new shuttle bus is that it is much better equipped for child seats, which makes us all feel better.”

The purchase was made possible by a private donor and the Missouri Department of Economic Development’s Neighborhood Assistance Program. Pictured are several staff members with the new bus. The old van can be seen in the background.

Thank you to everyone who made this vehicle possible!
