"If there was anything they could do to expand their hours and run on weekends, that would be my only suggestion, but they do such a good job, if they told me this is the way to go, I'd trust them," he said.
Regardless of the concerns of their critics, Key said the WVTS is primarily concerned with the safety of their passengers. The vehicles don't run on many days with inclement weather.
"If Chickasha Public Schools are closed, then we are closed," she said. "We close down for the safety of our clients. We don't want to put anyone at risk."
The WVTS runs Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. It costs $2 a fare for stops in Chickasha and $4 for rides to other parts of the county.
