Cedar Valley Services is expanding its public transportation outreach.

SMART Transit, a division of Cedar Valley Services, announced plans on Friday to partner with Minnesota Valley Action Council to provide public transportation services in Waseca County effective Jan. 1, 2016.

SMART Transit was formed in January 2014 under the umbrella of Cedar Valley Services when the transit agencies formerly known as Albert Lea Transit, Austin Mower County Area Transit (AMCAT), and Steele County Area Transit (SCAT) consolidated into one agency for the purposes of reducing costs, pooling resources, and providing more extensive services to the areas served.

Minnesota Valley Action Council has successfully delivered transportation services in Waseca County for over 30 years and looks forward to working with Cedar Valley Services – SMART Transit to expand and enhance the transportation services offered there.

At present, Waseca County is the only remaining county in the state of Minnesota that does not offer formal public transportation service.
