Councilman Henson remarked, “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the way Hopkinsville has embraced the much needed public transportation services.  We look forward to many more successful months of providing high quality, affordable transportation to our community.”

Hopkinsville Mayor Carter Hendricks echoed those sentiments and invites the public to help celebrate the system’s continued success with our first Hopkinsville Transit: Ride with the Mayor.  The event will be held on Wednesday, July 8 from 2pm until 4pm.
