New requirements for senior volunteer driving program begins Jan. 1


WILLMAR — A change in a federal grant that helps fund the senior volunteer ride program in Kandiyohi County means some elders will pay a little more for those rides.

Starting Jan. 1 riders will be asked to make a contribution that’s based on their monthly income to reimburse the driver for actual mileage.

Currently riders are asked to make a donation.

There’s a difference between a contribution and a donation, said Tiffany Collins, director of Kandiyohi Area Transit.
