Bus Buddy Program 

Need a Bus Buddy?

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
  • More!

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 led by one of our volunteer Bus Buddies.

Want to be a Bus Buddy Volunteer?

Are you an experienced bus rider who would like to help others become more comfortable riding the bus? If you answered yes, then check out our Bus Buddy Program. If you volunteer at least six hours per month, you will receive a free monthly bus pass!
