Arrowhead Transit


We have two types of transportation services: scheduled and Dial-A-Ride.

Scheduled services are the stops that our buses make each hour, or each day of the week.  If you click on the county, and then click on the city; this will show you all our scheduled stops.  The hourly schedule is like any other public bus service.  If you are at a listed stop at the scheduled time, our bus will be there to pick you up.  The weekly scheduled requires a reservation.  Call our dispatch at 1-800-862-0175 between 6 am and 8 pm Monday through Friday.

Dial-A-Ride is like a taxi service (but much less expensive!).  If you click on the county, and then click on the city; the computer will give you the times that our Dial-A-Ride service is operating within each city.  To use Dial-A-Ride, call our dispatch at 1-800-862-0175.

Our dispatcher will ask you:

  • Who you are
  • Where you are
  • Where you need to go
  • When you need to get there
  • If you want a return trip
