The Bus Buddy program provides free, one-on-one assistance for people who want a little extra help riding the bus. Your Bus Buddy will:
- Answer questions about riding the bus,
- Help you learn new routes and how to make local transfers,
- Ride with you to new destinations,
- Show you how to make connections with other regional transit services,
- Help you with online tools, and
Group Trips Scheduled
Our Bus Buddy program schedules fun bus trips for groups. Options include trips in Olympia and to Tacoma and Seattle for an array of community events including concerts, bazaars, museums, and more. Each trip will be lead by one of our volunteer Bus Buddies. Check back here soon for an updated schedule.
