Chuck MacNeil, PDRTA Executive Director said, “Based on interest levels we anticipate above average passenger counts for people wishing to attend Councilman Robinson’s funeral and want to be prepared. What a fitting tribute it would be to have buses of people arrive to pay respects to a man who for decades worked very hard to enhance public transportation in Florence and the Pee Dee”.
