Summer Youth Bus Program Renewed

Public transportation in Salina is continuing its popular youth bus pass program this summer.

According to OCCK Transportation, 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 summer activities, summer lunches, community centers, parks, the library, shopping and more.  Social distancing policies will be followed as needed.

The Summer Youth Bus Pass is available for purchase online on May 16, 2022, at and Buy A Pass, with options for pick up.  They will also be available at OCCK Transportation, 340 N. Santa Fe; and at the OCCK Corporate Office, 1710 W. Schilling, starting May 16, 2022.

“We have had the Get On & Go program for going on six years,” said Trell Grinter, Transportation Director for OCCK, Inc.  “The program has continued to grow in popularity.  We are helping kids navigate around Salina, participate in summer activities and community events, while using public transit, which means learning important life skills while gaining freedom and independence.”
