Changes coming for Osage County General Public Transportation

By Stephanie Watson

There will be changes in Osage County’s General Public Transportation service, which will now serve as a transportation subcontractor for LogistiCare. LogistiCare’s support means a stable revenue flow and trip assignments that help us plan routes more efficiently.

Osage County General Public Transportation will continue to offer shopping trips to Topeka, Emporia and Ottawa, but due to the increase in trip assignments the shopping trips have been changed to the second and fourth Saturdays of the month.  Oct. 22, will be the next shopping trip traveling to Topeka. Call 785-528-4906 to reserve a seat on the bus. When have you ever been able to be picked up at your door and dropped off at the front door of the store of your choice on a Saturday morning? Round trip is a suggested donation of $5.

For more information, call 785-528-4906 or stop by the Osage County Senior Center at 602 Market St., Osage City.
