Traveling to the little apple is about to get easier for some people in Kansas.
Some groups and organization are working on getting a fixed bus route that goes from Salina to Manhattan. There would be four round trips a day.
It’s not a done deal yet, but officials are planning to make stops in smaller communities like Abilene, Chapman, and Junction City. Each stop would cost a dollar making a one way trip from Salina to Manhattan cost only $4.
K-State student Joseph Morse said that would be more cost efficient for him.
“Gas, especially when it’s expensive, it adds up and so if there’s a cheaper option, that will be beneficial to me,” Morse said.
Transit officials said the route will cost $300,000. They’re currently looking for more partnerships and stakeholders to hopefully begin the routes in August.
