New Parks Highway Transit Service Links Wasilla, Fairbanks and Points In-between

A Wasilla-based company has launched a new bus service that runs twice weekly on the Parks Highway between Fairbanks and Wasilla, and points in between. Schleuter Services’s buses provide economical public transportation between the Interior and Southcentral, and an essential link on the road system that enables Alaskans in rural areas to get to and from the jobs, shopping, family and friends in the city – without having to move from their communities. KUAC’s Tim Ellis reports.

Tim has worked in the news business for over three decades, mainly as a newspaper reporter and editor in southern Arizona. Tim first came to Alaska with his family in 1967, and grew up in Delta Junction before emigrating to the Lower 48 in 1977 to get a college education and see the world.
