Today we received an update on Benzie Bus from its Executive Director, Sunrise Rotarian Bill Kennis.
In 2017 Benzie Bus enjoyed an increase in both ridership and revenues, and over the past three years it has saved nearly $300,000 in reserves--enough to cover almost three months of "rainy day" expenses.  As verified by survey responses, Benzie Bus is providing an invaluable service to the community.  It is continually tweaking its equipment and service to reach more riders and operate more efficiently.
In the Q&A that followed Bill's presentation, members noted Bus Benzie's fine service for a varied clientele and thanked Bill for coordinating bus service with many community events.  A great asset for Benzie County!
