All car-pools and bus trips begin and end at Knights of Columbus Hall, also called Rushman Hall,  (821 Newman St.) East Tawas.  Most carpools and bus trips will have a five-minute stop in the AuSable Township Hall parking lot (4440 N. US Hwy 23 ) in Oscoda to board and return passengers. Please arrive there early as times given are an estimate, and it would be a shame to miss you if the bus comes earlier than stated!
