The Pahranagat Valley Senior Center has finally received a bus to use for picking up residents and taking them places. Currently, the schedule is set for once a week but will eventually expand to other days. If you would like a ride, contact the senior center at (775) 725-3340 . This service is provided on a volunteer basis. The county and Lincoln County Transportation pay for the bus. There is a suggested donation of $2 for riders under sixty years old.
All trips are logged for the county. If the service is not sufficiently used, the other end of the county will reclaim the vehicle.
The intent is to help people come out and enjoy activities at the senior center along with assisting those in the valley to get around as needed. Hopefully, the use of this van will lead to other benefits for the center in the future.
The senior center is also working on trying to secure a metal roof via a grant or by getting materials and labor donated.
