The SMS Community Shuttle launched services July 1, 2013, bringing new connectivity to Sandpoint, Priest River, Newport and Spokane. The SMS Community Shuttle can work to accommodate special needs riders or offer flexibility in unusual situations. To make those arrangements or to reserve a spot aboard the shuttle, it’s best to call service operators at 1 (877) 264-RIDE (7433) or (509) 534-7171.
The SMS Community Shuttle makes two stops a day Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in each city on the route. Sandpoint residents can catch the shuttle at the Bonner County Public Works building, located on the corner of Division and Ontario. Riders are free to park their vehicles at the location and pick them up when they return.
The service aims to be affordable across all income levels. One-way fares run $1.50 from Sandpoint to Priest River, $0.50 from Priest River to Newport, $3 from Newport to Spokane and $5 from Sandpoint to Spokane.
The Washington and Idaho transportation departments collaborated on the project to keep fares to a minimum. Washington grants fund that state’s side of the service, while Idaho grants do the same for the Panhandle.
