WENATCHEE - Link Transit, now in its thirtieth year of service to communities throughout Chelan and Douglas Counties, has reached thirty million boardings on its fixed route buses. This milestone was celebrated on Wednesday, October 6 with the awarding of the “30 millionth rider” to Jennifer Harris of Manson, Washington. Jennifer was riding Route 21, a route of over 50 miles length coming from Manson to Wenatchee. She received a weekend getaway trip to the Oregon Coast, courtesy of Sunny FM Radio in Wenatchee. “I’ve been working 19 days straight; and am on the way to pick up my car from the shop today. I think I picked the right day to ride the bus. I am so excited”, said Harris upon finding out she was the lucky winner.

Harris has been riding Link Transit since service began in December 1991, as a teenager she and her friends would ride the bus to go to the movies and go shopping, and just to hang out. She said her parents loved the fact that they didn’t have to drive the kids around, and they knew they had safe, reliable transportation. Harris continues to ride occasionally, and her kids use the bus as well.
“It is always fun to talk with our guests and hear about how they use our services”, said Eric West, Link’s Marketing and Communication Coordinator. “Whether they are daily users, or ride infrequently, people highly value and greatly appreciate the fact that they can rely on Link Transit to get them where they need to go safely, efficiently, and affordably. And it is especially fun when we have milestones like this to celebrate, which are only possible with the ongoing support of our riders. It’s what makes it even more satisfying to provide this necessary service to our residents”.
