Transportation numbers about half of normal in Aberdeen

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – Transportation numbers in the Hub City rebounded towards the end of 2020, but still ended up about half of what is normal because of the pandemic.

Rich Krokel, City Transportation Director, said enplanements improved at the end of the year.

Ride Line Transportation numbers were down about the same percentage as those at the Aberdeen Regional Airport.

Krokel said there isn’t much you can do about the past, but that things look better going forward.

The past year saw the completion of one major project at the airport, while more work is planned in the near future.
