Stephanie McCormick has been a paratransit driver for five years.

Wichita Transit has made big changes to how its buses are run in order to keep riders and drivers safe during the pandemic: more frequent cleanings, more open seats. Those measures are even more important on the system's paratransit vans that take riders from their doors to medical and dental appointments, hospital visits, even dialysis.

This week, we meet a driver who, despite the added challenges that have come with COVID-19, says it's "the best job" she's ever had.

Plus, host Tom Shine talks to a psychologist about why remote work could stick around even after the pandemic ends (and why many people want it to).

KMUW News is a team of dedicated on-air and digital reporters working to tell the stories of Wichita and its residents.
