According to Dakota News Now, the first phase of this new expansion plan will include on-demand services on weekdays from 5:45 AM to 9:15 PM in the southeastern portion of Sioux Falls. That includes the area south of Interstate 229 and north of 67th Street.

Via operations director, Emily Shapiro told Dakota News Now, ”What does this mean for the bigger picture of Sioux Falls? As a result of this expansion, 40,000 citizens will have access to transit that did not have access to before, and we are increasing access to about 13,000 jobs.”

Here's another big plus resulting from the new expansion plan, 37 different stop points that community members requested will now be covered.

The additional on-demand expansion services are set to begin on Monday, (April 15).

Dakota News Now reports, that there are two different ways residents can book on-demand ride services, first, by using the "SAM Transit" app or by calling 605-367-7151.
