Our Goal is to Help Meet the Transportation
Needs of The Kenai Peninsula

The purpose of the BUMPS program is to create an affordable transportation choice that serves the community, non-drivers, senior citizens, and people with special needs. The bus service has the potential to connect people to local educational institutions, medical and dental care facilities, employment opportunities, and commerce while decreasing the overall economic burden of transportation to the residents and businesses of the Kenai Peninsula. Our Busses are wheelchair ready and ADA compatible. We hope that by increasing access to economic centers we can help reduce transportation obstacles, help the larger community, and promote positive growth in the region.

What is this bus service?

  • BUMPS is a bus service that has been established to help people overcome the transportation obstacles on the Kenai Peninsula.
  • This bus service is for everyone who would like a ride.
  • The bus service is provided transportation from Homer to Soldotna and Kenai.
  • We operate the service three days a week.
  • The bus will run on a fixed route schedule and have specific stops.
  • Information provided by the public and our riders will help shape how the service will operate and where the destinations for the busses will be.

What Does it Cost?

The service will cost $7 for a one-way fare and $10 for a round trip

We can take credit cards, VISA, American Express, Master Card and Discover

We Would Like to Hear from You
