According to the organization, from November 6th to November 12th public transportation providers, mobility managers, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) and partners across the state are celebrating the second annual Kansas Mobility Week. Agencies will host events to encourage Kansans to make efficient and safe transportation choices, promote multimodal transportation options, and roll out new initiatives and policies.
OCCK normally offers free rides on Election Day each year to help increase voter turnout.
“We are excited to provide free rides for the whole week to celebrate Mobility Week,” said Trell Grinter, Transportation Director for OCCK. “It’s a great opportunity for people to experience public transit and increase their mobility choices.”
