Liberty Mobility Announces Launch in Yankton, South Dakota

Friday, April 21 (Lincoln, NE) – Today, Liberty Mobility Now (Liberty) is excited to announce that the company will officially begin operating in Yankton, South Dakota and its surrounding areas in July 2017.

Liberty is on a mission to connect rural and small urban communities by providing Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and partnering with local governments, public agencies, foundations, organizations and non-profits to enhance and coordinate with existing transportation services.

“We are honored to serve Yankton County to support the needs of citizens in the community and help fill gaps in transportation access,” Liberty President and CEO Valerie Lefler said.  “The support of Yankton Area Progressive Growth (YAPG) demonstrates the innovative leadership in the community to greatly improve quality of life for those in need and support economic development for local businesses. 

“This is a promising and affordable opportunity for Yankton County and the surrounding area to enhance mobility options for our residents and visitors,” YAPG Board member Nathan Johnson said. “We welcome the partnership and look forward to Liberty’s success in our community.”

Liberty seeks to coordinate with existing entities to optimize transportation options, then provide its own independently contracted drivers where gaps remain in efforts to improve quality of life, population health, access to care, and safety for citizens. Yankton county and its surrounding area will be the company’s third launch location this year, following Van Wert County, Ohio and a large part of Nebraska.
