Agencies offer free rides from Boise Towne Square Mall to 'Hero 2 Hired' job fair
The Supportive Housing and Innovative Partnerships (SHIP) agency is providing free transportation from the Boise Towne Square Mall to the Idaho Center for the Sept. 12th Hero to Hired job fair.
SHIP is providing the drivers for the transportation service. They will be using a vehicle from Valley Regional Transit's GoRide vehicle pool.
The transportation services will be available from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Sidewalk sandwich boards at both locations will indicate the pick-up and drop-off times.
The pick-up location at the Mall is at the ValleyRide bus transfer center, a long concrete island in the northeast section of the Mall parking lot. There are two large bus shelters there. The pick-up site at the Idaho Center will be near the main entrance to the event.
Valley Regional Transit also will offer a free one-day bus pass if a veteran needs to get to the Boise Towne Square Mall and catch a ride or who lives in Nampa/Caldwell and wants to take the bus to the Idaho Center.
Requests for a free bus pass can be made by calling Mark Carnopis at 208-258-2702 or e-mail email@example.com, no later than Monday, Sept. 9th.
