Community Foundation Awards Sustainability Grant to Door-Tran

The Door County Community Foundation has awarded Door-Tran a Sustainability Grant from the John and Nell Community Impact Fund, the Door County Kairos Fund, and the Women’s Fund of Door County. This grant supports the Half-Price Travel Vouchers Program, in partnership with the Door County Medical Center, which assists patients in getting home from the hospital when only a private taxi service is available. Through the program, Door-Tran provides the Emergency Service Department vouchers that they can use to authorize trips with a private taxi provider that operates outside Door-Trans normal business hours.

“One of Door-Tran’s main strengths is the role it continues to play as the central coordinator and catalyst for addressing the highly complex problems of available, affordable, and accessible transportation for a diverse and widespread number of Door County residents,” said Dick Egan, Board Member of the Door County Community Foundation. “We are pleased to provide this grant to an organization that is doing such great work in our community.”
