Convenient, affordable, on schedule: Public transit serves all of Osage County

Submitted by Senior Center Director Byron Jordan

The second Wednesday of each month is the designated day the general public transit bus is routed from Osage City to Burlingame and Scranton, and then on to Topeka for a variety of shopping opportunities in Topeka. The suggested rider donation for this trip is $3 per person for the round trip. However, believe it or not, we have not had a rider from either of these pickup destination towns since one person rode with us last summer. And, who knows how long it was without a rider before that. We serve all of Osage County, and this is not an age discriminating transit service. For the monthly bus schedule see below or call the Osage County Senior Center at 785-528-4906 for information.

There are still plenty of seats left for our March 27bus trip to the COF Training Services Workshop in Burlington, Huff’s Greenhouse, Dairy Queen for lunch, and Arnold’s Greenhouse in LeRoy for their spring displays. This is a great way to spend a day and see the countryside.
