BG Transit to participate in ‘Ohio Loves Transit Day’

(Submitted by the City of Bowling Green)

On Thursday, Feb. 14, the City of Bowling Green’s B.G. Transit will participate in the Ohio Public Transit Association’s most recent initiative, “Ohio Loves Transit Day.”

The purpose of this endeavor is to promote the use and funding of public transit, statewide. Passengers utilizing the B.G. Transit that day will receive a free promotional item as the B.G. Transit’s way of showing appreciation for their valued customers.

The B.G. Transit is fully accessible to persons with disabilities, and open to all for use. In service for over 30 years, hours of operation are Monday through Friday 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

For rides originating and ending within Bowling Green’s corporation limits, the general fare (one way) is $4. For rides originating and/or ending outside the city limits, the general fare is $4.50.

With a transit ID card, 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.
