FAIRMONT — Drivers for the Fairmont-Marion County Transit Authority are quick to point out that it’s the passengers who make the job special.

They speak from experience, transporting more than 200,000 people each year to a host of places around the county.

“We’re just trying to make sure no one falls through the gaps as far as transportation goes,” said George Levitsky, who serves as general manager of the transit authority.

On Friday, the transit authority received a certificate of appreciation from Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s office in honor of “40 years of dedicated and outstanding service to the West Virginia Division of Public Transit and the citizens of the great state of West Virginia.”
