The Blue Water Area Transit is providing bus service to the Sacred Heart Rehabilitation Center in Richmond. A bus leaves Port Huron in the morning and returns after all passengers have finished their visit to the center. Jim Wilson, general manager, Blue Water Area Transit said, “This is a perfect example of how transit can improve quality of life by providing access to healthcare resources”. The new service is made possible by grant funding from the Region 10 Prepaid Inpatient Health Plan and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The round-trip cost is only $1.00 for passengers. Annually, Sacred Heart provides treatment to over 7,000 men, women, pregnant women and women needing to bring their children into treatment. It provides an extensive array of behavioral health services including substance use disorder prevention and treatment, mental illness treatment and HIV/AIDS prevention
and care management. Individuals who wish to use the new bus service should contact BWAT dispatchers at (810)987-7373 for more details.
