Transit Services - Night & Weekend Vouchers

The Arc of Woodbury is a member of a community collaboration which ensures eligible transit riders greater access to programs and services which are available evenings and weekends. People with disabilities find the cost of transportation during these times expensive. The vouchers enable the individuals to be more mobile, enjoy an enriched quality of life, and access options for programs and services not available at other times and/or places.

The collaboration includes City of Sioux City Transit System, Business Community, and various area clubs and churches.
