Bay Transit opens bus shelter at Riverside

Posted on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 12:36 pm

Last week, Bay Transit cut the ribbon on its newest solar-powered bus shelter at Tappahannock Riverside Hospital.  This is big progress point, said Liz Martin, vice president and administrator of Riverside Health System.

She credited Bay Transit and its parent company Bay Aging for having a huge impact in developing access to healthcare through public transportation. “A ribbon cutting at a bus stop seems unusual. Some don’t think about a bus stop being all that impactful in your lives, but here it has major impact,” she told the crowd. “Behind you, you see our facilities where we deliver great quality healthcare every day. The work that we do is hard and we put a lot of effort and time into it. We want to be the best for our community. But none of that matters if people can’t get here and access it.”
