Getting Around Using Public Transit

Southwest Michigan’s seven public transit systems offer a variety of services to over 285,360 residents in Berrien, Cass and Van Buren Counties.   Residents utilize transit to get to medical facilities, work, job training, and various other life sustaining activities.  In 2010 the seven public transit agencies that serve the region provided nearly 400,000 trips.

Transit service consists of a blend of immediate-request “dial-a-ride” services, fixed routes, and 24-hour reservation demand-response services. Some of the public transit systems serve multiple cities and townships, while others serve a single jurisdiction.  All of the systems provide weekday service Monday through Friday and a few provide limited Saturday service. There is no service available on Sundays or major holidays.
