University Community

Celebrate Ohio Loves Transit Week Feb. 11-17

Ohio University Transportation and Parking Services (TPS) will join a number of other public transportation systems across the state of Ohio on Feb. 13 to celebrate Ohio Loves Transit Day.

Participating transit agencies will showcase how their systems enhance mobility around their communities and help facilitate regional transit access for riders.

Ohio Loves Transit Day is part of the Ohio Public Transit Association’s Ohio Loves Transit Week (Feb. 11-17) which celebrates the role transit systems play in keeping communities moving.

TPS in conjunction with Athens Public Transit (APT) and GoBus, will be taking part in several events to help spread awareness of public and campus transit opportunities.

  • TPS will offer rider appreciation giveaways on Athens’s campus CATS Daily Shuttles, CATS Late Night Evening and Weekend Shuttles and CATCAB Paratransit services at various times through the day Feb. 13.
  • GoBus rides booked between Feb. 11-17 will receive 24 percent off with code GoBusLuv24
  • Free fare day Friday, Feb. 16, for the public on APT  - The campus community is reminded that Ohio University’s Bobcat Pass partnership allows students, faculty, and staff to ride APT routes fare free every day using their OHIO ID card.

Transit Operators are the heartbeat of campus transit systems, and their work is essential to keeping the wheels moving. TPS encourages riders to take a moment throughout their week to thank their transit drivers. Shout-outs for staff who have provided outstanding service will also be accepted by e-mailing; feedback will be shared with drivers.
