Coulee Cab to consider eliminating safe ride hours, Tavern League SafeRide not affected

By Correne Martin

It was reported to the Prairie du Chien Common Council Tuesday night that its Coulee Cab taxi service may eliminate its safe ride hours on Friday and Saturday nights due to lack of public use at that time. The Crawford County Tavern League’s SafeRide program would continue to run in the city however.

“They simply don’t have the ridership during those hours,” City Administrator Aaron Kramer said of the Coulee Cab service. He noted that, if the late night/early morning hours were eliminated, those hours would be shifted to weekday afternoons and early evenings.

A public hearing is set for the Tuesday, Nov. 15, council meeting, at 7 p.m., in the council chambers. Citizens and Coulee Cab’s Friday and Saturday night users should attend and share their opinions.

Just being in the company of those individuals who have been touched by any type of cancer is comforting and motivating.

The first meeting will be Wednesday, Oct. 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Polodna Room at Crossing Rivers Health. The free meetings will follow the third Wednesday of every month at that same time. Individuals touched by any form of cancer are welcome.
