Public transit company celebrates one year of rides in Phillips
PHILLIPS - Three years ago, Bay Area Rural Transit introduced a low-cost public bus in Park Falls, hoping it would catch on.

It did.

The bus was so popular, the organization expanded its service to Phillips last June.

This week, the transit company celebrated a year of offering rides in Phillips.

"Park Falls was working so good, and they still had that need for service in Phillips, they decided to expand, and we expanded a year ago," said Bay Area Rural Transit Manager Pat Daoust.

This summer, the transit service is offering free rides to all kids.

It's next looking to start a bus route from Ashland to Prentice.
