GILLESPIE FUELS AND PROPANE, INC. “ADOPTS” A STAGECOACH BUS
Stagecoach Transportation Services (Stagecoach) has received an “Adopt-a-Bus” sponsorship award from Gillespie Fuels and Propane (Gillespie’s). The award will be distributed to Stagecoach over four years. These funds will support Stagecoach’s bus replacement fund.
New buses make service safer and more reliable, ensuring riders can get to work, medical treatments, school and beyond with certainty and peace of mind. New buses also reduce the amount of fuel that Stagecoach consumes and reduce maintenance and repair costs, saving precious financial and environmental resources.
“This sponsorship from Gillespie’s is not just an investment in Stagecoach, but an investment in the whole community,” said Executive Director Jim Moulton. “We are grateful they have joined us as partners in making transportation services more affordable and reliable.”
In the past year, Stagecoach’s transportation system provided more than 81,000 rides. All of Stagecoach’s programs, whether bus, dial-a-ride or partners, allow community members to maintain their independence, gain and keep employment, and access critical healthcare services.
Karen Gillespie Korrow, Gillespie’s owner, stated, “We’re proud to support Stagecoach through our Charitable Giving Fund. Stagecoach’s community transportation programs improve the lives of so many Vermonters, including many of our own customers. We couldn’t be happier to sustain their efforts and make our community a happier and healthier place for everyone.”
Stagecoach continues to raise local matching funds that are required to leverage its government grant for new buses.
