Public Transit System Provides the Community with an Added Transportation Resource

This weekend’s Community Tree Lighting ceremony officially kicks off Bowling Green’s holiday shopping season. Avoid traffic, the need to park your vehicle and possibly snowy, ice-covered roadways by using the B.G. Transit, Bowling Green’s public transportation system, while you shop locally this year. The transit is available for everyone’s use and operates all throughout the corporation limits of the city of Bowling Green as well as up to one mile outside of it.  All seven of the B.G. Transit vehicles are handicap accessible.

Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. and Saturdays 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. For rides originating and ending within Bowling Green’s corporation limits, the general fare (one way) is $3.50. For rides originating and/or ending outside the city limits, the general fare is $4.00. Half-priced fares are available to persons aged 65 years or older, children (4-13 years of age) and those with disabilities.  For more information about the B.G. Transit (including how to receive the reduced fares noted above), please call (419) 354-6203.
