Rural Transit Service (RTS) is a non-profit transportation service. They provide transportation to senior citizens, low/moderate income individuals and disabled clients. Eligible residents are transported to dialysis clinics, medical offices, physical therapy, pharmacies, colleges, work places, senior centers, nutrition sites, adult day cares, grocery stores, banks, salons/barbers, etc., with medical trips taking priority.
The Rural Transit vans run between 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, except holidays.
Dispatch must be called 48 hours in advance and up to two weeks in advance for appointments. Individuals may schedule up to two rides per week.
On days your local school is closed due to the weather, the Rural Transit van is closed.
Rural Transit riders are not required to contribute for services provided, although donations are accepted and encouraged.
Suggested Donation: $3/trip or more for longer destination trips
Rural Transit Service is volunteer driven! Many residents volunteer to drive, dispatch or ride as a driver's aide.
