Schoolcraft County Transit Authority provides safe, efficient, reliable transportation for all residents of Schoolcraft County. Transit has operated in Schoolcraft County for over 35 years. We provide on-demand service, which is door to door service at the time scheduled. We use a computerized dispatch system.
If you are in need of transportation, please call us in advance to make your reservation. Calling ahead helps us to schedule your ride and to pick you up on time. Same day call ins may not be able to get the scheduled time they request due to advance reservations. We will do our best to accomodate your scheduled ride. When you call to reserve your ride the following information will be helpful.
Your Pick- up address
Time you would like to be there
Time you would like to return
Any special needs you may have
When you have a ride scheduled, we ask that if you must change your destination, that you first ask our dispatcher. We try to route our vehicles based on destinations and times, when you try to change them when you are on the bus, you alter times and rides of others.
Cancellations must be called in a minimum of 30 minutes prior to your scheduled pick-up time, otherwise they will be considered a no show. No shows affect times and rides for others, please be considerate and call in advance. If you have a no show, you may still be charged the full fair as if you had rode.
We offer discounted youth and weekend passes. Please call transit for more details. Our computer is capable of setting up recurring rides for your convenience.
