Were just trying to help people be more mobile around the fairgrounds. Its a new idea, so were not sure how much need there is going to be.The shuttle will generally stick to a pre-determined route. Due to safety concerns, areas such as the carnival and food court will only be serviced from the designated route, though drivers will try to accommo-date special requests.That doesnt mean we wouldnt deviate occasionally if we need to take someone to a little bit different location, Burnett said.The operating schedule may change based on demand, but drivers are prepared to operate for all major events. One golf cart seats six; the other, four. One major caveat, though, is that the golf carts arent de-signed to hold wheelchairs or electric scooters.We can take walkers and canes, but we dont have the ability to take wheelchairs, Burnett said. If they want to get on the cart and ride and have someone else move their wheelchair, thats fine.If they can get on the cart physically, we can move them. Thats kind of a safety thing. ... For a seriously physically dis-abled person, we dont have the training or capability to provide that service.The shuttle service is being run entirely by volunteers.We do have a good num-ber of people volunteering, so we really appreciate them be-ing volunteer drivers, Burnett said. We would have a lot more expense if we had to hire driv-ers.Given the overall philan-thropic mission of the fair, he said, the willing volunteers and the assistance from St. Francis made the service possible.We hope that people riding and people driving have a good time and enjoy the fair, he said. Id like for people who feel they might need assistance to come and try the service, and if they have suggestions, to let us know.By Emily Tateetate@reporter-times.comQuestions about the shuttle service?
