Campaign to bring bus service to Natrona
We've recently launched a campaign - along with some good friends - to bring bus service to Natrona and other nearby neighborhoods that need access to affordable transportation. Our organization has received a grant from the Three Rivers Community Foundation to support this campaign.
You may recall that we co-signed a formal request for this service to Port Authority last year along with the Allegheny Valley Association of Churches and Natrona Comes Together Association
Now, the Highlands Partnership Network has joined in this effort and has engaged Port Authority. The HPN represents about 30 organizations and leaders in the Highlands community.
We have started a petition ( http://bit.ly/ourbusline ) that will be presented to Port Authority. And, we are scheduling community rally meetings to discuss this request and gain additional support.
Our request is for Port Authority to extend the Route 1 Freeport Road from Tarentum, along River Road, serving the areas of Tarentum, Brackenridge and Natrona along the river, and then head up the hill to serve Sheldon Park, and finally heading to the Highlands Mall where families can shop for food and clothing.
