SubmittedIn April 2014, the Bee County Commissioner's Court took action to end the fiscal oversight of Bee Community Action Agency Rural Transit District. That action was followed by Bee Community Action Rural Transit Distrcit recommending on May 5, 2014, to join as a cluster the REAL Rural Transit District.
On May 12, 2014, the Bee County Commissioner's Court took the final action and approved a resolution granting the four rural transit district counties to join REAL Transit and expand its service area.
The REAL Board of Director's resolution is now presented before the Texas Transportation Commission for final action which will be effective June 5, 2014, after being signed Friday, May 16.
"We as a Board are extremely confident that this transition will be seamless and insure the continued high standards under which REAL operates its services," J.C. Perez, REAL Board Chairman, said. "We are proud of our transportation services and want the public to know in the new service area counties that they will be able to depend on REAL Transit."
"We are humbled that the Bee County Commissioner's Court had 'confianza' trust in REAL Transit who has been serving thousands of residents in Brooks, Jim Wells and San Patricio Counties," said REAL Board Secretary/Treasurer L. Arnoldo Saenz. "I am confident that REAL Transit will continue with excellent service and the Courts from Aransas, Live Oak and Refugio, will also be pleased as that is our mission."
"I believe that this is a unique opportunity and wonderful gift to expand our services to the other residents of the other counties including seniors, persons with disabilities and the general public," said REAL Board Vice-Chair, Mrs. Olivia Iglesias. "Today's action is a positive step forward in caring for those that need our transportation services and I am glad that REAL will meet that need."
