Streamline Bus Service Celebrates a Million Rides!
The Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) and Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) celebrate Streamline’s one millionth ride on Veterans Day in Bozeman.
On Friday, November 11, 2011 at 8:45 AM, the lucky one millionth rider will be greeted by Streamline staff, Board Members and volunteers at the Downtown Transfer station – located at Mendenhall and Black streets. The unsuspecting rider will disembark Streamline’s Blueline (Route) to awaiting gifts and the honor of being the one millionth rider!
The Press is invited to attend. The rider will be available for interviews and photographs.
Streamline, a program of the HRDC, is Bozeman’s public transit system. The system was launched in partnership with ASMSU in August of 2006. Streamline service has knitted the community together – connecting our neighborhoods as never before. Streamline’s convenient, fare –free rides allow residents and visitors access to work, school, medical care, recreation and the like; reduces the pressure on downtown parking and traffic; and helps eliminate automobile emissions. In addition, the system has enhanced public safety with late night services and strengthened connectivity to outlying neighborhoods and the nearby communities of Belgrade and Livingston. Most importantly, the Streamline buses symbolize what can happen when people pull together to find new ways of making the community more livable and affordable for those who call the Gallatin Valley home.
Streamline is funded by the Federal Transit Administration, with funds administered by the Montana Department of Transportation; and local support from ASMSU, Montana State University, and the City of Bozeman.
Streamline and the HRDC are proud of their role in making Bozeman the most livable place!
