There’s love in the air this month and at Hopkinsville Transit there’s nothing we enjoy more than showing love to our riders by getting them where they want to be.  So, we are proud to announce that Hopkinsville Transit kicked off the month by showing love in a large way and delivering over 1,000 rides in a week.  We had so much fun that we connected another 958 riders in the month’s second week.
