For more information
family with family member(s) on active duty:
If you are part of an
immediate family where one or both of the parents are
currently on active duty, the other family members will
receive free travel in the Pierre / Fort Pierre area
with RCPT. For travel outside the Pierre/Fort Pierre
area and within the state contact the office for fare
quote. Be sure you can prove 1 or more family members
are on active duty.
If you are returning from
active duty and find yourself without a job contact RCPT;
we are offering veterans preference to all military
returning from active duty. This means in a job
interview where you are competing with other applicants
you will get 5 extra points, and if you’re a disabled
veteran you will receive 10 extra points out of 100.
While you’re not guaranteed a job, if you have some of
the skills required with veteran’s preference you become
very competitive in the selection process.
