Getting Around

The bus system in Oak Ridge provided plant workers with service from the city to the plants, school bus service, and a general city-wide transit service. More than 350 buses were used in the city area, and 400 buses were used to transport non-residents to work. Bus services were free during the war years.

Over 160 miles of boardwalks were built so people could move around. Still, the mud was a constant problem and boots became a primary means of footwear.
