Benzie Bus Hits Millionth Rider Milestone

Benzie Bus has been offering a public transportation option for more than 12 years, and they’re about to hit a milestone.

Benzie Bus will celebrate their millionth rider Tuesday morning.

They expect it to happen sometime around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Benzie Bus started in 2007, and the director says there will be a big celebration.

“I’ts a big milestone, of course a million of anything is a lot and we just completed our fiscal year and had a 108,000 riders so a record ridership too,” said Bill Kennis, Executive Director.

The millionth rider will receive a gift basket with goodies from local businesses, and a year of free rides.

50 other riders Tuesday will get a commemorative t-shirt.
