TAPS Public Transit, a major regional provider of public transportation services, is asking Wise County residents for input on the need for an airport shuttle service.

TAPS already provides demand response, point-to-point shuttle bus service in Wise County, and transit officials are considering adding an airport shuttle to and from DFW and Love Field airports.

Since 2001, travel by air has become a stressful ordeal. Travelers taking a trip for business or pleasure can often expect a difficult journey, under the best of conditions. And a large part of travel stress comes from just getting to and from the airport. That’s why TAPS Public Transit is considering offering an airport shuttle service from Decatur.

“Before we can dedicate equipment and manpower to a new service, we need to ascertain if the residents of Wise County would use an airport shuttle,” said Brad Underwood, chief executive officer and executive director of TAPS Public Transit. “A quick survey is available online at the website, and we hope Wise County residents will give us their input. If there is sufficient need, we will launch the new service, possibly before the Christmas holiday.”

Wise County residents can share their opinion about the proposed airport shuttle service by taking the eight-question survey online at

Results of the survey will be published on Dec. 15.
