As bus ridership continues to grow following the January debut of Phase 2 enhancements and Zero-fare service, Mountain Line is pleased to welcome Bill Pfeiffer as the new community outreach coordinator. A Missoula resident since 2001 and former director of the Missoula Urban Demonstration Project (MUD), Pfeiffer hopes to continue helping commuters learn about the benefits of public transit.
“Sustainable transportation benefits everyone in our community, even those who don’t use it every day,” said Pfeiffer. “I am looking forward to spreading Mountain Line’s positive message in Missoula and getting more people excited to ride the bus.”
Pfeiffer believes that the benefits of riding public transit are many, from helping people get to work or school and aiding those with disabilities, to reducing traffic and improving air quality. However, he says these aren’t the only benefits of riding the bus in Missoula.
“How you start your day can make a big difference not just in your own personal happiness, but the well- being of your coworkers and fellow students too. Riding the bus is a great way to avoid the stress of commuting and I’m looking forward to working with our community partners to continue improving our quality of life through public transit,” Pfeiffer said.
Pfeiffer brings with him a long history of community involvement in Missoula, working with many different nonprofits and local and state government officials in both a staff and volunteer capacity. As a long-time Missoula resident, he’s also committed to Mountain Line’s goal of improving the quality of life for everyone in our community.
“We’re excited to bring Bill on board and are looking forward to having him as part of our team,” said Corey Aldridge, Mountain Line general manager. “His enthusiasm and prior work in the community makes him an excellent asset for us and is great news for public transit in Missoula.”
