Preschool Transportation Assistance Available

Stephanie Ivankovich

Children who live in Adel, Perry, Winterset, Greenfield and Indianola who qualify for preschool tuition grants, for households at or below 200 percent poverty level, may be eligible to ride public transportation at a free or reduced rate.

Children can be picked up from their home or childcare center and dropped off at participating preschools. Transportation services will be provided through the collaboration of 4Rkids Early Childhood Iowa, local preschools, Home Care Services, Madison County Elderly Services, Southern Iowa Trolley and Heart of Iowa Regional Transit Agency (HIRTA).

Contact Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Preschool Enrichment Coordinator, Val Cameron, at (515) 971-2977 or valc@iastate.edu for more information, necessary forms and to check eligibility status.
