CityGo is a local subsidized bus service in Salina, Kansas operated by OCCK through partnership with the City of Salina and the Kansas Department of Transportation.[1] The service was opened to the public in November 2008.[2]

Routes and operations[edit]

CityGo operates four fixed routes, all of which cover a significant and different area of the city, and terminate in downtown Salina where each route forms a loop.[3] The routes are identified by color: the blue route serves the north and eastern parts of the city, the red route serves greater downtown and the south, the yellow route serves the east side of town and down the main street, and the purple route serves the entire south and west areas of the city, near the airport. Each route operates on a regular one bus per hour schedule during non-peak hours, and two buses per hour during peak hours.[4]
