The Quincy Shuttle, operated by Big Bend Transit, is back in business until the end of this fiscal year. The in-town shuttle ceased operating on Feb. 28 because the emergency funding from the city of Quincy and Gadsden County had dried up. But the two governments have given the company a bailout.
During its March 5 regular meeting, the Gadsden County Board of Commissioners voted to subsidize Big Bend Transit with $36,000 to continue through the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. However, that was contingent on the actions the city of Quincy would take at its March 12 meeting.
