Summer is in full swing and while kids may be out of school most parents still have to work. So, DeckadencE Board Shop came up with a great way to encourage the next generation of skaters to get out to the skatepark and skate it up. Buy a DeckadencE skateboard and get FREE rides on Pocatello Regional Transit to the skatepark for the rest of the summer!  DeckadencE will customize each skateboard to meet the needs of any experience level of skater. Then, simply show the bus driver on any PRT route your DeckadencE skateboard and let them know you’d like to transfer to the “D” route and go to the skatepark.  Stop in the shop, 326 W. Center, and let them build a board for you today and take advantage of this unique opportunity. Any age group is welcome to participate. Don’t wait, Bus-A-Move at DeckadencE today.
