POGO How to Ride

Directions of Service

POGO runs every 30 minutes with buses going bi-directionally (in both directions).  One bus goes  Clockwise (CW) and the other runs Counterclockwise (CCW).  You can get on the route, go one direction CW, and take the reverse direction bus CCW to get you back to your original location without having to ride the entire 18-mile loop.

How to Know When to Be at the Bus Stop

The schedule included with this information does not include all bus stops on the POGO route. For non-listed stops, it is recommended to be there the same time as the one listed before it. Keep in mind that the bus typically should not run earlier than the scheduled time, but it could run later. Be at your selected bus stop and watch for the bus. Make sure the driver can see you as they approach the stop.

Layover Explanation

A layover occurs at the end of each trip to allow for a driver’s break and scheduled recovery. POGO has a layover at Arrowhead Towne Center mall, which serves as the Arrowhead Transit Center.

The POGO bus also reverses its direction of travel after the layover at Arrowhead Towne Center. Please note that if you are going to a location beyond the stop at the mall in the same direction of travel, you will need to exit the bus you arrived on and board the next POGO going in your desired direction.
