Supervisors hoping cities will help fund service

By B. Adam Burke
North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– Contracts with Iowa City and Coralville for the county-wide para-transit bus service, SEATS, will expire at the end of June. But Johnson County supervisors have already decided they want to end their subsidy of the service.
The program provides riders around the county with door-to-door transport and anyone outside the city limits of Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty and University Heights can request a ride that comes with a half-hour window for pick-ups.

Switching SEATS?
