Get On & Go Youth Summer Bus Pass Program to Continue

Salina, Kansas –OCCK Transportation, through 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 for the third year,” said Michelle Griffin, 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, a win-win situation for all.”

CityGo Running Bus Routes with New Bike Racks

OCCK Transportation announced today that bicycle racks will be available on all five local bus routes for CityGo.

Beginning Monday, April 15, bicycle racks will be available on every bus on both Peak and Regular routes, for free customer use.  The permanent installation of the racks is part of OCCK’s plan to improve transit in Salina, which seeks, among other goals, to improve bus service and increase ridership by focusing on customer service and needs.

“The addition of bike racks is another step in our plan to improve bus service and attract new ridership,” said Michelle Griffin, Transportation Director for OCCK, Inc.  “Bike racks are a great amenity for customers who want to increase their mobility and take advantage of the city’s growing network of bike lanes and trails. The racks help customers transport bikes over a long distance and our buses provide a vital connection for people who need or want to use public transit.”

The bicycle racks will be mounted to the front of the buses, providing space for two bicycles on each bus.

The racks are free to use and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Customers who wish to transport their bicycles must wait for a bus with an available rack. There is no age restriction on usage but the customer must be able to load and unload the bicycle safely and securely, and parents or guardians are asked to use caution when allowing minors to use the racks. Any customer who cannot safely operate the bicycle rack may be restricted from using the service.

A video instructing customers on the safe and proper use of the bicycle racks, as well as additional information, is posted at www.salinacitygo.com under Passenger Information/Bike & Go.

CityGo Routes on Apple Maps

OCCK Transportation is proud to announce that travel by CityGo routes can now be planned with Apple Maps.  Transit Data for the CityGo fixed route service has been available for a few months on Google Maps, but with the addition of Apple Maps, we are now able to accommodate iPhone and iPad users. 

We hope our participation in Apple Maps will encourage current ridership and connect CityGo to new active riders.  By showing the “Transit” link in every search for driving directions, Apple Maps in Salina is helping to promote public transit by informing drivers of the possible transit services they could utilize.  This service can be used on mobile phones and devices that use the Apple Maps app.
