Benzie Bus Route Expands to TC

A new bus route will link to Traverse City from Frankfort and Beulah.

Benzie Bus is creating a direct route into Traverse City.

They’ve saved 118 bus hours per week, so now they can disperse those hours to different routes.

The director of Benzie Bus, Bill Kennis, says this is important to help everyone enjoy the city and get to work.

“In Benzie county there’s about 17,000 residents and i’m told there’s over 2,000 that commute to Traverse City everyday. So you got the commuters but then you also have the citizens that want to shop and enjoy the entertainment that Traverse City brings.”

The service will go from Frankfort, to Beulah, to Lake Ann right into Traverse City. The buses will run four times a day.
