Bus On Time--and that's no April Fools!

The big blue Trailways bus rolled into Potlatch right on time, kicking off the new bus service that can take area residents north to Spokane and Coeur d'Alene or south to Lewiston and Boise--and ultimately points beyond. For now the bus will load on Pine Street across from the bank, but in a matter of weeks, it will be serving the Potlatch Depot! Imagine leaving your car behind when it's time to catch a flight at Spokane (one way $19). Or leave the driving to Trailways when it's time to go to Boise (under $100 roundtrip!).

Agency Supervisor Charlie Neill was on hand to monitor progress on the maiden voyage this morning, and driver Barry Coe (pictured above) took time to pose for a photo, although he was watching his clock so he wouldn't be off schedule. These guys are sharp--and fun. The bus rides should be great.

Check with US Bank for times and prices. The bus schedule and fares will also be posted at the depot soon. Check the company websites at www.northwesterntrailways.com or www.appleline.us for further info.
