Bus program based at senior center serves citizens of all ages

Submitted by Osage County Senior Center Director Byron Jordan

There may be some misunderstanding regarding the general public transportation bus service. The buses are not senior center buses. The transit service is open to all Osage County residents, with no discrimination against any person on the basis of race, color, nation origin, sex, age, disability, or veteran or income status. The service is part of a state-wide coordinated public transit program, and funding comes from federal, state and county sources.

There are regularly scheduled trips, rider appreciation trips to special destinations, and on-demand trips are provided to a variety of destinations, such as for medical purposes, for work, or for education.

The rider appreciation trip to Legends in Kansas City on June 27 is filling up fast. If you are thinking about signing up, please do so soon. Sending two buses would be considered if there is enough interest. So, this is a great opportunity for families, church groups, and clubs with or without youth, to enjoy free matinee movies, walking exercise, a variety of meal options, and fresh air. For more information, contact the Osage County Senior Center at 604 Market St., Osage City, or call 785-528-4906.
