Youth Summer Bus Pass Program to Start
Salina CityGo is continuing the successful “Get On & Go” program for Salina area youth ages 7-18.
Youth ages 7-18 will be able to purchase a “Get On & Go” Summer Youth Bus Pass for $10. The pass will be good for unlimited rides on Salina CityGo from June 1 to August 31.
Youth must show the drivers their “Get On & Go” pass when they board the buses.
Riding the bus gives kids the freedom to get around in the summer. The “Get On & Go” Summer Youth Bus Pass is a great way for kids to get to Kenwood Cove, community centers, parks, the library, shopping and more.
The Summer Youth Bus Pass is available for purchase at OCCK Transportation, 340 N. Santa Fe; OCCK Corporate Office, 1710 W. Schilling; Bennington State Bank, 200 S. 9th St., and 2130 S. Ohio; Salina Regional Health Center Human Resources, 400 S. Santa Fe.
“We are excited to continue the Get On & Go program,” said Michelle Griffin, Mobility Manager. “The program has a two-fold mission. One is to help kids get around Salina safely and two, we hope getting kids used to riding the bus will increase our passenger numbers for the rest of the year. It’s a great deal and we hope a lot of families take advantage of it.”
For more information call OCCK Transportation at 826-1583 or go to www.salinacitygo.com.
