Go shopping with EARL!


EARL Public Transit, a program of Northeast Iowa Community Action, is happy to announce a new pilot route with fixed stops on Thursday evenings in Decorah. The route will run from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. with the first stop at the Dahl Centennial Union at Luther College and last stop at First Lutheran Church. During this trial run, other stops will include the Oneota Co-op, and Walmart. The route will begin on Thursday, April 12th, with a $2 fare that allows riders unlimited stops along the route during its service hours.


“Since this is a trial run, the times and stops may shift as we determine the best way to deploy the new route,” Sam Castro, Mobility Manager with EARL Public Transit, said. “One of the top responses from the 2017 Community Transportation Needs Assessment was expanded hours. This route is a first step towards addressing needs that are important to the community.” 


The timetable with the specific stops, along with future adjustments will be posted on EARL Public Transit’s Facebook page.
