Free Ride


11.15.2016 Filed Under: Students


Throughout the upcoming winter semester, riding a bus free-of-charge to the West Shore Community College campus will be offered to students and anyone traveling from Ludington, Manistee and Scottville.

The College underwrites the operational costs of the bus service to encourage more students to pursue their education without concern over transportation costs. The service is also available to those wishing to access college facilities.

Beginning January 16, the first day of winter semester classes, there will be three round-trips, Monday – Thursday, arriving at the campus early morning, before noon, and mid-afternoon. There is one round-trip on Friday.

The buses depart from and return to Ludington’s Rath Avenue and Loomis Street parking lot, Manistee’s Memorial Drive parking lot, and Scottville’s municipal parking lot, behind West Shore Bank.

The free service is available until May 5.

Transportation is provided by Manistee County Transportation, Inc. and the Ludington Mass Transit Authority.
