With the Homeland store closing at 31st and Harvard, the Area Agency on Aging says a lot of seniors are left wondering how they'll get their groceries.

That's because there are a number of seniors who walk to the store from the nearby neighborhood.

So, the Indian Nations Council of Governments Transportation Resource Center was at the store Friday, teaching people about the bus system.

"It can be really intimidating if someone's never used the bus, or, you know, tried to navigate the bus system. It can be really scary for someone," said INCOG's Jessica Brent.

INCOG said there are three grocery stores in that area you can get to without having to change buses.
