When Lafayette County Board of Supervisors opted out of participating in the new Oxford-University Transportation over a year ago because they felt the busses would not serve county residents adequately, they still wanted to offer reliable transportation to the elderly and disabled people in the county.
Supervisors met with representatives from the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) who agreed to work with the county in providing transportation in the county for the elderly and disabled. RSVP currently provides transportation to those 55 and older and the disables but only within the city of Oxford.
RSVP will be running a 17-passenger bus and a mini-van in the county on a demand response system. (October 14, 2010, Page 1)
