"Meet the Bus"
				MEET THE BUS

During the school year we offer a free educational and fun program, called "MEET THE BUS". It starts with 
the beginning of school in September and is ongoing throughout the school year into May.  This opportunity is 
open to City, County and Private Schools and available to all types of child care facilities. 

Children ages' preschool through junior high, parents and teachers enjoy learning about the usefulness and 
value of public transportation. We bring an actual BTS bus right to your classroom and start with a brief 15 
minute presentation in the classroom which includes free transit related materials. Then we proceed onto the 
bus and it takes us throughout the surrounding neighborhoods. Once the children are on the bus they learn 
to read bus stop signs, bus rider ettiquette, and will learn all about the operations of Basin Transit Service.
Upon returning to school children and teachers will leave the presentation comfortable and assured they can 
confidently use the BTS buses for all of their transportation needs. 

Wednesdays have been set aside for MEET THE BUS. Contact us at 541-883-2877 to schedule your appointment.
