Deadwood Approves Paratransit Ridership Fees

The City of Deadwood recently purchased a van for its paratransit services, according to the Black Hills Pioneer. The 2017 Dodge Caravan was purchased for $24,977 alongside a city commission resolution which approved a fee schedule for paratransit ridership.

Passengers 60 years and older can receive transportation within Deadwood or from Deadwood to Lead at no cost. Trips to Spearfish and Sturgis from Deadwood are $10 per trip while trips to Rapid City will cost $15 per trip. Passengers under 60 years of age can receive transportation in Deadwood and to Lead for $2.50 per trip. Trips to Spearfish, Sturgis and Rapid City are the same cost as those listed above.

Paratransit rides originating in Deadwood, which run from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.,  require 24 hours’ advanced notice. Deadwood’s paratransit program is administered by its Transportation, Safety and Buildings Director Tom Kruzel.
