Transportation Resources in Johnson County

by Kara Logsden on March 7th, 2018

I recently learned about a great resource for finding information about transportation services in Johnson County. Kelly Schneider is Johnson County’s Mobility Coordinator. She works in the Johnson County Social Services office and her job is funded by the Iowa DOT, Johnson County, City of Iowa City and City of Coralville. Anyone can contact Kelly and the services of our Mobility Coordinator are free-of-charge.

Information about transportation resources in Johnson County is available on the Mobility Coordinator’s webpage. This includes a Transportation Resource Guide. The Guide is a comprehensive list of transportation options including Transit systems, taxi cabs, rides to medical appointments provided by local social service agencies, and (my favorite) information about the Library’s Ride & Read and Summer Library Bus programs.

Summer Library Bus

Do you have a Library Card? Are you ready for summer? Why do I ask?

The Summer 2013 Summer Library BusLibrary Bus program at the Iowa City Public Library kicks off on Thursday May 26th.

An Iowa City Public Library card is a child’s ticket to ride an Iowa City Transit bus FREE this summer. The Library will provide free bus rides to children through 12th grade, and the adult caregivers who are with them, on any Iowa City Transit bus route, from the day after Iowa City Schools dismiss (Thursday May 26th) until the day before school starts (Tuesday August 23), on weekdays between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.

Bus riders should show their Iowa City Public Library card to the bus driver to gain free access to the bus.

More information about riding the bus to the Library is available at this link:

Three cheers for SUMMER and the SUMMER LIBRARY BUS! We’ll see you at the Library!
