Passengers Barbara and Allan recently talked with us about why they value STC: “The drivers are prompt & helpful.” “The bus is clean.” “I don’t have to depend on someone to get where I need to go.” We thank our drivers who are out in the cold, taking Allan to the senior center for lunch, and Barbara to see her doctor. They lend a hand to keep riders steady on their feet. And, each year, we cover one million miles across Cuyahoga County, in all weather and road conditions, delivering over 100,000 trips.
