Those with disabilities needn’t be homebound. Mobility is at hand with TARPS.

In 2013, TARPS completed 320,390 passenger trips, a 7% increase from 2012. The continued increase in demand for TARPS’ services has created the need for a new 80,000 sq. ft. facility which opened February 24, 2012. The green building design incorporates a geothermal heating and cooling system, solar panels, skylights, reflective roofing, and earth sheltering for energy efficiency. There will be a biodiesel fueling station for public fleet vehicles on the site as well.
