Citylink Recognized As Outstanding Rural Transit System

For the past 15 years, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has recognized transit providers that have overcome significant challenges to deliver reliable service to the public in rural areas.

This year, Kootenai County's Citylink was one of six transit systems recognized nationwide with an Outstanding Rural Transit System award. Here's more on this honor from Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood's blog.

Congratulations Citylink! It's good to see your hard work is being recognized.
