Lee County and the School District of Lee County are working together to provide free public transportation to the state’s Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP) event happening Friday through Sunday at the Lee Civic Center in North Fort Myers.

Those who want to ride a bus can visit one of 15 pickup points throughout Lee County to ride the free shuttle to the civic center. Hurricane-impacted residents in Lee County can also use their phones to participate. Those who want to attend should pre-register online.

The event will run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on all three days. The buses will be LeeTran vehicles on Friday and school buses on Saturday and Sunday. All participating buses will be identified with “D-SNAP” signage. For route, pickup location and schedule information go to the Lee County website.
