"We want to ensure that the entire community reaps the benefits of OCT, whether we're guaranteeing mobility to a resident, transporting customers to local businesses or clearing up traffic along Highway 98," Birchett said.

"As areas like Crestview and Niceville continue to grow, there is no doubt that the demand for these services will increase. Now more than ever, it's important that our community leaders show support for public transportation," said Jim Wood, Okaloosa-Walton Transportation Planning Organization's chairman and a Destin City Council member.

OCT provides fixed route and paratransit services through Crestview, Niceville, Fort Walton Beach and Destin.
