Description

Gus Bus Goes Virtual

While the bus cannot make its rounds through 18 neighborhood sites Monday through Thursday, the staff is still providing the service via YouTube and promoting it on their Facebook page and with help from city schools and other partners. In a partnership with the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, the Gus Bus also is continuing to provide non-perishable food items to families Monday through Thursday.
