  • Riders welcome on the public bus

    Local resident Gene Lohman is one of about 65 Yellow Springs residents who ride the public bus that comes through the village about every 45 minutes during the weekdays. Anyone interested in a bus route tutorial and free trial ride is invited to sign up now for an event scheduled the week of April 13. The rides are sponsored by the local Climate Change group.

    Village resident Gene Lohman loves the “flex” bus — Greene County’s public transit system. When he wants to get anywhere — from downtown to Xenia or Beavercreek — he simply puts himself at a place along the bus route and hails a ride.
