Lee County--People without transportation in South Georgia will soon have a cheap way to travel.

Under a new 14 county van service, you'll be able to call and schedule a van to pick you up, take you to your destination, and drive you back home. Southwest Georgia RDC Executive Director Dan Bollinger says, "They're are a number of people that don't have transportation to get to the grocery store. You have people paying 5, 10, 15, 20 dollars just to go shopping to get necessities. This provides an avenue to avail them transportation."

And it's cheap, only a couple of bucks per trip. Lee County has already signed on, and the program will start next summer.
