One time some people sat around and thought about how nice
it would be to have a bus service in Sandpoint. Out of those
ideas came the plan and filing for grants.
Now years later, the dream had some true by the hard work
of a few.. The grants came thru.. and their dream was even
better, they could have the bus service for all... all for FREE!!
FREE!!! for all, to ride from Kootenai to Dover.
With stops between, even the bottom of the hill, so those who wanted to
go ski in the winter could change over to the Mt. bus.
Now a year later.. the buses run back and forth.. from Dover to
Kootenai and back again. An hour round trip, if you just want
to ride.. It stops in Ponderay, in Sandpoint.. several stops.
Now I only see the bus stop in Kootenai. But I am telling
you every day I go to the post office next to the stop and
there is always some one waiting for the bus to arrive.
There is young as well as old. Some going to the beach,
some going to work. No matter what time I go
to get my mail there is someone waiting.
So if you are ever in Dover, Kootenai, or Sandpoint, or even
Ponderay... ride the SPOT bus. It is a great way to
see the towns and it is all FREE..
