Help on the Road | Letters

Can you imagine being unable to get to your medical appointments, pharmacy, grocery store or community events? Neither can we, so in 2013 we formed the nonprofit shuttle service RoundTowner to serve low-income seniors, elderly and disabled rural residents of our county.

At $3 per ride, we are the only affordable, subsidized transportation in the Friday Harbor area. Without county, town or other government support, we can continue to exist only due to the generous donations of our neighbors, service organizations and the United Way. We are fortunate to receive volunteer time and the commitment of veteran drivers. The United Way grant will cover most of our liability insurance for the year.

Feel free to contact us at with suggestions or questions. Phone 298-6108 for a ride in the Friday Harbor area.
