When Cheryl Kennedy moved to Cookeville in 2022, she wasn’t sure what, if any, public transportation options would be available. Still, she knew she’d need a safe, reliable, and affordable transit option to get to and from work.

“When you have a disability such as mine, you have to pay to get anywhere you want to go,” said Cheryl, who is legally blind. “I’m so thankful to have a public transportation option that is very affordable.”

Cheryl, who lives outside the city limits, uses UCHRA Public Transportation to travel daily to and from work.

“Even my employer has mentioned how impressed they are with the timeliness and flexibility of UCHRA Public Transportation,” she said. “It’s such a relief to know there is an affordable way for me to travel to and from work every day.”

Cheryl is one of our clients who will be featured in a client-centered testimonial campaign, highlighting the impact that UCHRA Public Transportation has in the region. Stay tuned for more Passenger Perspectives coming soon!
