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 five 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 (North) route serves the North part of Salina to Otis Avenue and terminates back at 7th and Walnut at the half hour. The same bus then switches to Blue East and serves the east part of Salina, all the way to the Presbyterian Manor, before terminating back at 7th and Walnut at the top of the hour when it switches to Blue North again. The red route serves central Salina and south Salina. The yellow route serves the east, central, and south part of Salina. The purple route serves the south and west portions of Salina, and is the only route that serves the airport, OCCK offices, various colleges and industry work. The Green route serves the west and north part of the city, with the northern part covering all the way up to and past Interstate 70. Each route operates on a regular one bus per hour schedule during non-peak hours, and two buses per hour during peak hours.[4]
