This community transport keeps people without licenses, or working second/third shift, from having to say no to work because they otherwise couldn't get a ride. The staff that drive the vans and such for the NTS are kind, dependable, and supportive of those who need a little support on the road to full-employment. Cedar Rapids, like most cities west of the Mississippi, has an insufficient public transportation system, but NTS fills in the gaps.
