Updated: Nov 4, 2020
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK)-Since the TRPTA bus service dissolved in May 2019, efforts have continued to restore transit service to Idaho Falls.
City Council President Michelle Ziel-Dingman reported this week that the formal TRPTA bankruptcy proceeding should be completed in November. Purchase of the organization’s physical property by a third party was delayed, but is expected to move forward.
Ziel-Dingman says the service is reorganizing under a new business name, “G.I.F.T.” or Greater Idaho Falls Transit.
She told the City Council that Idaho Department of Transportation grants officer Summer Hirschfield is working with GIFT to re-establish service.
