Bus Buddy Tours offer seniors, age 60 and over, an opportunity to learn to navigate the Madison Metro Bus System while enjoying a group tour to a fun Madison location. The program was designed to help ease the way for those who are not used to using the bus system, while creating a fun group social outing. Bus Buddy Tours are supported with funding from Dane County Human Services and AAA, and there is no cost to participate in the tours listed below.
