A Tampa woman recently celebrated her 103rd birthday and has no plans to slow down. In fact, Pinellas County is making sure she keeps moving for as long as possible by giving her a free lifetime bus pass.
Barbara Rygiel for many years has relied on the bus to take her to church four times a week, but the cost of it adds up. She won't have to worry about that anymore thanks to her lifetime pass.
She says, "It means everything to me. Look at how much I can save."
The CEO of the transit authority said, "We are very proud to serve everyone in Pinellas County and certainly folks that are seniors, many who can’t drive or have limited availability to drive, rely on public transportation."
Rygiel says she is eternally grateful and when she goes to church every day she'll keep the transit authority in her prayers. (Bay News 9)
