Peru alderman offers to drive shopper bus

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2012

The shopper bus is a way for seniors in Peru and La Salle to get to area stores but it only runs on weekdays. That would change under a proposal from Peru Alderman Rodney Perez. Perez says he would volunteer his time to drive the shopper bus for a couple Saturdays, especially with the holidays approaching. He shared his idea with the rest of the city council Wednesday night.

Perez is a truck driver and has a CDL.

City Clerk Dave Bartley says he can’t see anyone being opposed to it. They’ll put comment cards on the bus to see if the riders would like it.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
