We ask that you schedule your trip at least 24 hours in advance. Same day requests are not guaranteed. Trips can be scheduled up to 7 days in advance. The pick-up and drop-off times may be up to 15 minutes earlier or later than your scheduled pick-up time to accommodate other riders. It is up to you to be watching for the bus. Trips should be scheduled one hour prior to the desired time of arrival. Exact fare is needed when boarding the bus.

Passenger aides must be pre-approved by the Transportation Manager with written notice from the doctor on prescription pad or office letterhead. Upon approval, the aide is able to ride for free. Otherwise, their fare would be $4.00 one way for a trip within Miami County.
Carry on items are permitted, provided they do not exceed what you can comfortably carry in one trip. All passengers are permitted to carry personal items on the buses. In addition, all carry on items must be secured in a tote bag or other means of control. No loose items that may become a hazard in the event of a sudden stop, will be permitted. No open containers of drinks, food, or other liquids that can spill are permitted.
Bags are available on all buses for $1.00 each.
