Although wintertime has not arrived officially, it will within the next week.
The City of Bowling Green reminds the public that when blustery days threaten to keep persons homebound, the B.G. Transit provides an added transportation option to and from local destinations such as the grocery store, university classes or medical appointments.
The B.G. Transit's curb-to-curb service is convenient and can save passengers from extra steps on the snow and ice.
The B.G. Transit is Bowling Green's public transportation system, providing service to the general public throughout the entire city limits. All seven transit vehicles are accessible to persons with disabilities.
Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The general fare (one way) is $3.50. Reduced 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 reduced fares), call 419-354-6203.
The City of Bowling Green's website is also a source of additional information about the system: www.bgohio.org/grants/transportation.
When scheduling a ride call 1-800-579-4299. Persons with hearing impairments may make contact through the Ohio Relay Network at 1-800-750-0750. Those with speech impairments may contact the Ohio Relay Network at 1-877-750-9097.
The B.G. Transit is funded, in part, by the City of Bowling Green, dollars from the City's Community Development Block Grant and capital and operating grants from the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Administration.
