CityGo youth program expands to spring

Posted Feb 23, 2021 3:48 PM

OCCK Transportation, through Salina CityGo, is expanding the successful Get On & Go program for Salina area youth ages seven-18 for 2021. 

Youth ages 7-18 will be able to purchase a Get On & Go Spring Youth Bus Pass for $10.  The pass will be good for unlimited rides on Salina CityGo from March 1 to May 31.  Youth must show the drivers their Get On & Go  pass when they board the buses.  

A summer pass will be available to purchase at a later date.

The Spring Youth Bus Pass is available for purchase online immediately at www.salinacitygo.com under Online Store with options for pick up.  They will also be available at OCCK Transportation, 340 North Santa Fe Avenue. 

“We are excited to expand the Get On & Go program,” said Michelle Griffin, mobility manager for OCCK, Inc.  “The program has continued to grow in popularity and we want to offer opportunities for kids to ride throughout the year.  We are helping kids navigate around Salina, participate in activities and community events, while using public transit, which means learning important life skills while gaining freedom and independence.”

For more information call OCCK Transportation at 826-1583 or go to salinacitygo.com.
