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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the joy of the passengers, the punctuality of the passengers, and the success rate in criminals who are transitioning back into society. After the devastating flood in June of last year, there are so many people in need of a supportive organization like NTS.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that they fill a basic need here in Cedar Rapids for the underprivileged. Without a car you cannot succeed in this town, but with a ride you can keep that job that will buy you a car or pay the fines that help you reinstate your license.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing. Kind, energetic and helpful. Plus, they are brave enough to maneuver van around town.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

revolutionize the transportation system in the entire city
