Wahkiakum on the Move Adds Three New Buses to Fleet

Branded and ready for service, three brand-new buses arrived at the Elochoman Valley Campus last week. Back in April, Wahkiakum on the Move received a new-to-them 2022 Ford Starcraft Passenger Van from CHOICE Regional Health Network. This addition was the youngest of the fleet by nearly 10 years; WOTM vehicles were on average around 15 years old. Wahkiakum on the Move was able to purchase the three newest buses with funding between two grants: the Regional Mobility Grant and a Consolidated Grant Agreement.

The fleet update comes just in time for the bustle of another busy and exciting season for the community: local community vendors at the Marina Street Market, workshops at Puget Island Gardens, song circles at the Skamokawa Grange, classes at Little Island Creamery, celebration of Bald Eagle Days, and now, the West Wahkiakum Farmer’s Market. WOTM helps get people to all sorts of destinations along its 41 local and intercounty stops. After 20 years in operation, Wahkiakum on the Move has traveled over a million miles getting residents where they need, for just a dollar each way (and free for seniors). Ridership is nearing pre-COVID numbers again, which is great news for the community.
