Efficiency requires elimination of monthly Lyndon to Topeka bus trip

We are looking at ways to make the Osage County general public transit service more efficient, and one of the steps we will take is to consolidate or eliminate scheduled trips that that are getting little or no ridership. In January, we will discontinue the Lyndon to Topeka shopping trips which have occurred on the fourth Wednesday of each month for years.

To make sure Lyndon area residents still have opportunities to get to a variety of shopping facilities, Lyndon will be added to our stops along the way to Emporia each month on the second Thursday, and to Topeka on the trip through Carbondale on the third Thursday of each month. The recommended donation for these trips is $5 for the round trip ride. Several stops are made on a regular basis, and riders wanting to make a special stop during the trips are almost always accommodated if time allows.

We apologize if this change causes personal inconvenience to anyone. Please call the Osage County Senior Center at 785-528-4906 if you have any questions about our county public transit service. And, remember, this service is available to all Osage County residents of all ages.
