Bus service coming soon to Yakama Nation

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash -- The Yakama Nation has been selected to receive half a million dollars from the federal government for a new transit service.  

The bus service will be free, and available to anyone who lives on the reservation -- not just tribal members.

The local non-profit, People for People, will help them run the bus line, which will likely stop near medical buildings and local businesses like grocery shops.

An official start date has yet to be set but they are aiming to begin service the first part of the summer.
