According to OCCK Transporation, youth ages 7-18 will be able to purchase a Get On & Go Winter Youth Bus Pass for $10. The pass will be good for unlimited rides on Salina CityGo from December 1 to February 28. Youth must show the drivers their “Get On & Go” pass when they board the buses. Face masks and social distancing policies will be followed as needed.

“We are so excited to expand the Get On & Go program to winter,” said Trell Grinter, Transportation Director for OCCK, Inc. “The whole program has continued to grow in popularity.
