Will Right Way Shuttle bring back its services to students?

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW)- Eau Claire City Council will vote on the Public Excessive Intoxication Ordinance Tuesday, but will Right Way Shuttle bring back its services to students?

News 18 sat down with Tom Klatt, the owner of Right Way Shuttle, who said he’s happy to see changes to the proposed ordinance, but said there’s still a lot that needs to be done.

The original ordinance, The Public Good Order Ordinance, would have prohibited buses or paid drivers from dropping off more than 10 people on a single block between 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., so Klatt discontinued his service.

Klatt said 15 years ago he started his business to provide his services to students who needed a safe ride, but now he isn’t sure if he’ll bring it back.

“I lost my employees who depended and relied on that job, they of course have found employment and part time jobs elsewhere, so it does make it very difficult for me to bring that service back,” Klatt said.

Klatt said luckily his business has evolved over the years, so it didn’t affect his business too much.

He did say though, he may consider bringing the service back.
