Gator Aider Back In City Hands
Less than a year after the city of Gainesville handed over control of the Gator Aider bus service to a private company, they are taking it back.
The Gator Aider is a shuttle service that gives University of Florida football fans five spots throughout town to park their cars and get a ride to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium without having to worry about crowds and traffic.
The service has been traditionally run by Gainesville's Regional Transit System but last year Fabulous Coach Lines took control.
Federal guidelines mandate that the city offer non-essential services, like the football shuttle, to any private business willing to take the responsibility on.
When Fabulous took over, they increased the rate for service to ten dollars, now that the city has regained control of the shuttle the rate increase will remain.
