About

Sandy Valley Transportation Services, Inc. (SVTS) is a nonprofit community transit system that has provided safe, dependable and affordable transportation for the residents of Floyd, Johnson, Magoffin, Martin and Pike counties in eastern Kentucky since 1990. The community transit services are possible by Section 5311 operating assistance funds. SVTS is applying for FY 2012 Section 5311 operating funds for the continuation of the existing community transit services and for the expansion of transit services into other areas of the five – (5) county region.

 

Dispersed populations and vast distances between communities characterize rural areas in Kentucky. Sparse population combined with the great distances and the lack of transit amenities intensifies the need for transportation services. The quality of available and affordable transportation in the Big Sandy Valley area has a direct bearing on the quality of life for residents.

 

SVTS is proud to serve all the people of the Big Sandy area with emphasis being placed on serving the elderly and individuals with special needs. Many of these individuals rely on SVTS for their transportation. They depend on SVTS to go the doctor and other places like department stores, banks, grocery stores, drug stores, beauty and barber shops, social service agencies, jobs and many more places. Serving the elderly and individuals with special needs is emphasized by SVTS.

 

Many individuals rely on this transportation for accessibility to health care services, stores, health and human service agencies and many other destinations. SVTS serves as the Section 5311 provider of community and inter-city transportation and as the Section 5310-lead agency for the area.
