Transportation Services

Rural Transportation Service

The RTS program is a "demand response" system which means that we will pick you up at your door and take you where you need to go. Our buses are 12- 18 passenger, wheelchair lift-equipped buses and are routed through many communities, assuring service to residents of rural areas. The program is donation-based and assists individuals who are unable to access other modes of transit. See information below for RTS locations/schedules.
