Community Support ActivitiesRiver Cities Public Transit
We believe in supporting our community, and do so not just by keeping as much business as possible local but also by actively participating in community events and coordinating with other local nonprofit organizations. Some of these activities include participating in the annual 4th of July parade in Fort Pierre, providing free local transportation to and from large community events and cooking hot dogs and brats the first day of the horse races at the Stanley County Fair Grounds.
River Cities Public Transit supports the youth in our community by annually sponsoring youth sports leagues and offering a discounted rate to youth participating in summer recreational activities. We have coordinated with the Boys & Girls Club and the YMCA since 2006 transporting students to these organizations through the school year at a low rate per participating family. We continue to coordinate with the YMCA through the summer as well by providing vehicles needed for their summer program. In 2007 we began coordinating with the Fort Pierre Community Center/Stanley County Gold Program by providing coordinated transportation to and from field trips through the summer and on Fridays through the school year.
Recently River Cities Public Transit has sponsored one of the South Dakota Honor Flight members. The Honor Flight is sending WWII Veterans from South Dakota to visit the National WWII Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery in Washington DC this year. We are proud to be a sponsor and hope enough funds are generated to allow all of the Veterans that have applied the chance to go.
