Riding in comfort

By Public Affairs Office

Those new, shiny buses you might have seen on post can take you in air-conditioning comfort to lunch and to your next meeting.

The Logistics Readiness Center here, recently introduced two new vehicles as the Tiefort Shuttles on two routes that operate Monday through Friday (except federal holidays) from 7:50 a.m. to 4:03 p.m.

Besides taking you near Taco Bell, the shuttles can take riders to Weed Army Community Hospital, the Reception Campus, NTC headquarters, USAG headquarters, DFAC 1 and 2, and other locations. For a full schedule, refer to NTC/Fort Irwin Facebook photos for images of the schedule.

Jerry Walsh, director of LRC, said that the routes are convenient for the commuter population who do not drive personal vehicles on post. The shuttles can accommodate 26 riders; they are very maneuverable and greener, since they have a cleaner, diesel-type engine. They are more efficient than the older 44-passenger buses and correspond with DoD’s fleet-vehicle streamlining.

All active duty personnel and their dependents and all civilians – DOD and civilian contractors – are eligible to ride the Tiefort Shuttle. For more information, call the LRC/Transportation Section at 380-3385/3816.
