Quail Bus In Trouble
Where'd they come up with that name?
Kind of a neat little service that I don't believe I'd heard about before. Did somebody mention it a while ago when we were discussing medical transportation in Humboldt?
This Quail bus drives seniors from Southern Humboldt to Fortuna and Eureka. Apparently the ridership is too low and the powers- that- be are considering giving it the axe [again].
Hard to believe you couldn't fill a bus that size for a trip north from the Garberville area. There was an article in yesterday's Times- Standard Business(?) section (can't find it online) about Humboldt's medical transportation companies going under, partly because of the price of gas. Could some of the current meditrans users switch to the Quail line?
There should be more than enough people around SoHum to fill up the Quail bus.
