Transit services are especially important given the economic impact that rising gasoline prices have had on motorists, as well as for the positive role they play in shaping the economy and helping the environment.
In partnership with the City of Salina and the Kansas Department of Transportation, Salina-based OCCK Inc. operates and manages the Salina CityGo® fixed-route transit service. CityGo does not replace any of OCCK’s current transportation services; it simply enhances them.
Salina’s fixed-route bus system, CityGo, serves more than 65 percent of the city with safe, reliable, and cost-effective transportation service. In partnership with the City of Salina and the Kansas Department of Transportation, OCCK operates and manages CityGo transit services, including a fleet of eleven buses, 147 bus stops throughout Salina, and comprehensive accessibility.
Wave and Ride Routes are indicated by dashed lines on the CityGo map. Passengers may wave to a passing bus from any corner within this area, indicating that they want to board. Drivers will stop at the nearest safe location, usually the far side of an intersection.
CityGo spans the city from North to South and East to West with four routes, noted by colors on route maps and bus stops: red, blue, purple, and yellow. There are five transfer points to make crossing from one line to the next fast and efficient. Service hours are:
Fares for the CityGo buses are $1 per trip, $2 per one-day pass, $5 for a six-trip pass, and $35 for a monthly pass. Children 10 and under will ride for free, but must be accompanied by someone 16 or older. Personal Care Attendants will also ride without charge. Each bus is wheelchair accessible.
CityGo buses feature a green, organic design that is clearly marked “CityGo” and can be easily spotted.
