Greenway“Working with Sheetz locally has been phenomenal. They were eager to partner with us to help host our Rider Appreciation Day. It’s been a great experience to plan this event with the district manager Steve Murray and his team. We are so glad they have joined our neighborhood! Sheetz clearly has a heart for the local community. We appreciate everything they have done to go above and beyond for this event. Public transportation is vital to growing the community and it is a way to invest directly into the future. Riders invest in Greenway every time they board one of our buses. We are glad to have the opportunity to give back and thrilled to have Sheetz on board as a partner to do so. “-Stated Amelia Bostic, the event coordinator for Greenway Public Transportation.
