Grape Line Bus Service Celebrates Major Milestone

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - A local bus service is celebrating a major milestone. The Grape Line Bus Service, which runs three round trips from Walla-Walla to Pasco, has now carried more than 40 thousand passengers.

The buses started their routes in November 2007, and since then they've traveled almost 600,000 miles total.

The drivers tell NBC Right Now their success comes from linking two wine friendly cities as destinations for tourists.

"I think it's a milestone myself and I think if people haven't rode the bus and get a chance to I think it'd be a good experience," said bus driver Armin Schulz.

Riders can hop on the bus in Pasco at the Greyhound stop, the Amtrak Station, Ben Franklin Transit, or the Pasco Airport.
