Al Love of Battlefords Handi-bus reported this week that the transportation service has received a private donation of $80,000 towards the purchase of a new wheelchair-equipped bus. The donation was received from an individual who wishes to remain anonymous.

In presenting the donation, Battlefords Handi-bus reported the donor stated the handi-bus was of great importance and a need within the community. The donor also believes having newer and more reliable equipment would ultimately assist the handi-bus to be more cost-effective and allow it to provide and maintain affordable fare pricing into the future.
