College Offers Free Bus Service to the Campus


Riding a bus free-of-charge to the West Shore Community College campus will be offered again 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 high gas prices. The service is also available to those using college facilities.

Beginning August 31, the first day of fall 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.

Bus service is also being offered on August 24 and January 4, prior to the start of each semester, to accommodate students wishing to purchase books or access other college services.

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 April 29, 2016.

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