A Message from New Namekagon Transit Director

Hello, my name is Kerri Sabin. I have lived in Hayward most of my life. I feel so fortunate that I was able to grow up in our small community, and raise my family here. But, with all of the benefits of living in a small rural area, the lack of resources available presents challenges to all of our residents. Barriers and access to safe, reliable, and affordable transportation effect our residents of all ages.

The majority of my prior experience has been working within a Community Health Center Organization and operating an adult family home. My background in both Human Resources and Marketing has been very beneficial during the transition in to my role at the Namekagon Transit. In the short time I have been in my position, I have had the opportunity to meet with many of our community partners from Sawyer County, Lac Courte Oreilles, Ventures, Washburn County and Barron County.  I am so excited to strengthen these relations and collaborate together on ways we can better service our clients and remove barriers and gaps in services available. Our Sawyer County and Lac Courte Oreilles board members have given me the opportunities to participate in a variety of trainings that have benefited the transit as an organization, and have expanded my knowledge in public transportation.

I am extremely thankful for the longevity, knowledge and experience of the staff at the transit. We have started to work as a team on new ideas and ways we could provide greater access to the communities we serve.

In addition to our regular routes and service in Sawyer County, we have routes that run from Bayfield County to Hayward and from Hayward to Rice Lake.  We also offer service in Washburn County and Barron County Monday through Thursday each week.  If you have questions about any of our services, please reach out to us at 715-634-6633.
