Free Ride


11.15.2016 Filed Under: Students


Students can ride the bus for FREE to West Shore Community College from Ludington, Manistee and Scottville.

The cost to fill up the car gas tank can be expensive, so riding the bus makes sense. You’ll save money, wear and tear on your car, and you’ll help the environment.

There are three round trips conveniently scheduled around class times; and when you leave the driving to us, there’s extra time to study!

Service is available Monday – Thursday, arriving at the campus early morning, before noon, and mid-afternoon. A single round-trip Friday bus run is also available.

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 during the fall and winter semesters.
