NORFOLK, NE—On Monday, June 13, North Fork Area Transit launched ‘NiteLift’, a new service that offers evening, on-demand rides with curb-to-curb pick up and drop off, similar to Uber®. NiteLift operates 7 days a week, Sunday through Wednesday from 6:30 pm-12:30 am and Thursday through Saturday from 6:30 pm-2:00 am.
Riders can be picked up at any address within Norfolk city limits and travel to any destination within a 30 mile radius. Rates within Norfolk are $5 per one-way trip, per person. Rates for trips outside the city of Norfolk incrementally increase based on the number of miles. A service and rate map is available at northforkareatransit.com/nitelift.
Riders can book a ride by calling 402-379-4595. Credit card payment must be made at time of scheduling. Rides are guaranteed within 2 hours or less. Riders can also walk-up to a parked NiteLift vehicle and request an immediate ride, based on availability of the driver. Wheelchair accessible vehicles are available upon request.
North Fork Area Transit Executive Director, Jeffery Stewart states, “NiteLift is a great compliment to our other daytime services-the ForkLift bus and TeleLift schedule-ahead rides, which both end service at 6:30 pm. NiteLift is a great option for shift workers and those who need a safe ride home after enjoying some nightlife.”
