FREE Local Saturday Shuttle
The Beaver Creek Transit Saturday Van will run from 10 AM to 1:45 PM, continuous 45-minute loops, starting and stopping in the lot across the street from the Ranch House parking lot.  The Buggy will make five local loops in the Beaver Creek area stopping in Lake Montezuma, Rimrock and McGuireville. Driver Roz will drop off & pick up between stops if there is a safe place to pull off of the road. On the last run, the Buggy will drop off on Wickiup Mesa if requested. There is no charge.  The driver will not take donations on these runs.
 
The stops are LM Village Square, Montezuma Haven, BC Gas Mart, Towers Dr, BC Library, Dollar General (crosswalk in front of fire station, Bice Rd mailboxes, McGuireville RV Park, Kiwanis Clothes Closet & Family Dollar, BC Gas Mart, the Smoke Shop parking lot and return to Lake Montezuma.
This service is very much a community effort.  Thank you to the Beaver Creek Community Association which purchased the buggy and to the Beaver Creek Adult Center which provides the nonprofit 501(c)3 partnership.  Thank you to the Lake Montezuma Civic Club, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, the Yavapai Apache Nation and to the Kiwanis Key Club (high school students) who have provided the initial funding for the Saturday route.  And last, but not least, heartfelt gratitude to Rask’s Auto Service now in McGuireville for keeping the van operating for the past 10 years.  There would be no Saturday run without Rask’s preventive maintenance and resourceful repairs. Nor would there be without our drivers!
