MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - Council members have moved ahead with plans to add nighttime transit service to augment the daytime bus schedule in Mason City.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1OdYJRy ) that the City Council agreed Tuesday night to apply for a grant of more than $76,000 to help subsidize the service.

Transit director Pat Otto says the new, $2-a-ride service would be contracted to the Region 2 transit service operated by the North Iowa Area Council of Governments. It operates much like a taxi service, picking up passengers at their homes and taking them to their destinations.

City buses run from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on fixed routes Monday through Friday. The night service would run from 6 p.m. to midnight.
