Update: This shuttle service is ending at 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 12. The Harding Hills Hy-Vee reopens to the public on Tuesday, Nov. 13.
DART and Hy-Vee, Inc. are partnering to provide free transportation from the flood impacted Harding Hills Hy-Vee (3330 Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway) to the Hy-Vee store on East Euclid Avenue (2540 E. Euclid Ave) in Des Moines.
The Harding Hills Hy-Vee, which is located at 3330 Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, flooded on June 30, causing the temporary closure of the store. This closure created a food desert for many of the surrounding neighborhoods. Hy-Vee is funding the free shuttle, which will leave each Hy-Vee approximately every 40 minutes between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., 7 days a week until the Harding Hills Hy-Vee reopens. Approximate schedule information is shown in the table below.
