A physician on the Golden Mile wants to bring a shuttle to the area to help people get better access to health care and to basic needs.

The Golden Mile circulator, yet to be named, will be paid for by Dr. Julio Menocal, who owns a practice on Baughmans Lane. The shuttle will likely start in November and run twice a day.

Menocal first started thinking about a shuttle system about five years ago. He will meeting with members of the Golden Mile Alliance and county staff this month about his plans.

Menocal spoke with producer Heather Mongilio about bringing a shuttle to the area, why it is needed and what gave him the idea.

Later in the episode, features reporter Kate Masters joins Mongilio to talk about the upcoming issue of 72 Hours. Masters spoke about a cat cafe coming to Frederick, as well as new legal changes that allow distilleries to sell cocktails.
