BANKS - Vernonia Route 6, opened this April as a three-day-a-week service between Banks, Vernonia and Hillsboro, has just expanded to five days a week, according to Todd Wood, Transit Program Administrator with Columbia County Rider. 

Wood had told the post in April that Columbia County was seeking funds from the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF) to move the route to a 5 days a week service. In an email to the Post on Oct. 3, wood confirmed this as the source of funding.

The route starts at Vernonia City Hall and travels down Highway 47, making a stop at Stub Stewart . . .
