Penquis Lynx Receives Two-year Federal Grant to Make Travel Easier for the Disabled 

Services are being expanded to make travel a little easier for people with disabilities.Penquis’s Lynx program in Bangor was awarded more than 200-thousand dollars in federal funds.The grant will let Penquis provide disabled individuals in the Bangor area transporation at a reduced rate of $2.50 per trip.”For $2.50 each way with the price of gas, I think most residents will be able to afford that but with anything if finance is a problem, give us a call we’ll see what we can do,” said Marcia Larkin, Director of Community Support for Penquis.The grant is good for two years, but Penquis says it intends to renew it to enhance the program down the road.
