On Wednesday, May 17, 2023, OCCK Transportation will be hosting an open house and cookout in honor of National Transportation Week. The event will take place from 11 am-2 pm at 340 N. Santa Fe, Salina. Hot dogs, chips and bottled water will be served. The event is free and open to the public. In addition, guests will be able to view the current transportation vehicles, including a CityGo bus, meet staff, and learn more about transportation.
“We love what we do, and we want to celebrate this week,” said Trell Grinter, OCCK Transportation Director. “The community has been so supportive of our efforts to provide public transportation throughout the region. This gives us an opportunity to share that with everyone.”
National Transportation Week is a way to increase the awareness and appreciation of the transportation industry and to celebrate the community of transportation professionals who keep our country on the move.
