General Information

The B.G. Transit is Bowling Green's public transportation system and it is open for use by everyone!

Many people think B.G. Transit is a "taxi", but it isn't. It is a demand response public transit system that operates more like a bus service whose route is determined by scheduled rides. Because we are considered demand response we will do the best that we can to accommodate "last minute" reservations. If, however, you don't schedule your trip at least one hour in advance, you will be able to ride on a space-available basis only.

B.G. Transit is one of only a few public transportation systems in the State of Ohio, funded through grant money, which does not require 24-hour advanced reservations.

Funding is provided, in part, through the City of Bowling Green, Community Block Grant dollars, and an operating grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). Since our system is grant funded, we must follow the service mandates established by ODOT and the FTA.
