Mountain Line announces new Zero Fare partners

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Since Mountain Line went Zero fare in 2015, Mountain line reported a 70% increase in ridership. Their ‘40 for 40’  campaign aims to increase their zero-fare partnership to 40 members by 2018, Mountain Line’s 40th anniversary.

Mountain Line announced their newest Zero Fare partners Wednesday. The Missoula Federal Credit Union, The Missoula Independent, MacArthur Means and Wells Architects, the Missoula food bank and Windfall INC joined 20 other partners this month.

The partners contribute money to keep Mountain line free to the public. Mountain Line Community Outreach Coordinator Bill FIFER says Zero fare has made Mountain line accessible to everyone.

“Predominantly, we’re getting more employees to work, we’re getting more students to school, we’re keeping more people with disabilities and more seniors active, engaged and independent. And really what this is about is that what’s good for our community is good for all of us," said Mountain Line's Bill Pfeiffer.

Mountain Line hopes to gain 14 more partners by the end of the year.
