Southeast Tulare County residents are urged to attend a workshop to learn about free transportation opportunities for youth in Tulare County.

The LOOP Bus Workshop is scheduled at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15 at the Porterville Public Library.

The LOOP bus is available at no cost to transport at-risk youth and connect them to activities that provide mentoring and gang prevention programs throughout Tulare County.

The workshop will discuss how the LOOP bus is currently being used and ways to increase service throughout the County. LOOP services have not been fully utilized in Southern Tulare County. LOOP coordinators are bringing an informational workshop to the area in hopes of increasing ridership.
