Town-to-town and service to regional hubs

A regularly scheduled service provides a means for residents of rural areas to travel to larger towns or regional hubs. This transit service helps members of the public access goods or services not available in their hometowns. By using public transit to travel to regional hubs, travelers can enjoy shopping, medical services, restaurants or entertainment without the cost of using their own vehicle or the worry associated with city traffic.

Medical Rides


Regularly scheduled transportation between rural areas and medical facilities.  Members of the public utilize this service to travel for medical appointments, dialysis or chemotherapy. Depending on the location, this service may be formally structured or provided as needed.

Dial-A-Ride/Para Transit

This service provides door-to-door accessible transport. Dial-A-Ride is an advance reservation transportation service for persons with disabilities and seniors. Eligible persons may schedule a ride by contacting the transit provider. The required notice is usually 24 hours in advance, though some agencies will take same day reservations.
