Flint Hills Area Transportation Agency (aTa Bus) has four stops within the Downtown footprint, with a service area including the Manhattan-Riley County area, western Pottawatomie County including the Green Valley area and the St. George and Wamego area, Fort Riley, and the Junction City-Geary County area including the towns of Grandview Plaza and Milford. Service is available to the general public.
Manhattan is a bronze-level bike-friendly community. Our wide, flat streets make it easy to get around on your bicycle. Or use a free loaner from one of our Green Apple Bike racks.
LINK allows anyone age 18 and up to rent their dockless e-scooters around the city and on K-State’s Manhattan campus. To use the e-scooters, download the “LINK — Scooter Sharing” app on a smartphone. It costs $1 to unlock an e-scooter and 25 cents per minute to ride.
For questions about e-scooters in Manhattan, contact the City Manager’s Office at 785-587-2404.
