ST. JOHNS, MI: Clinton Transit, the public transportation system serving Clinton County, is now offering limited walk-on rides. Clinton Transit’s Blue Buses are standing by at locations throughout St. Johns, DeWitt, Bath and East Lansing from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday through Friday.
“We’ve found by strategically positioning our buses in high-traffic locations within our service areas, we are able to meet more people where they are and provide a new option to the community,” says MaLissa Schutt, Executive Director of Clinton Transit.
Walk-on rides are available on a first come, first served basis. Visit here for a complete list of locations.
Anyone who needs a ride can simply hop on a Blue Bus at one of 16 walk-on locations within Clinton County. Drivers will continue assisting passengers with wheelchairs and other mobility devices. Walk-on passengers can schedule a return ride when boarding, if needed. Regular rates apply to all walk-on rides.
Riders who need transportation at a specific time and place are still asked to schedule curb-to-curb service in advance by calling dispatchers at 989.224.8127. Rides can be arranged with as little as two hours’ notice. Standard operating hours are Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Transportation outside of normal business hours or to locations outside the Tri-County region may also be available. “We provide more than just a ride. We keep riders connected to life’s essentials and help communities grow and thrive. Our heart for service and genuine care for our riders is at the core of everything we do,” said Schutt.
Established in 2001, Clinton Transit has been providing curb-to-curb service to meet the needs of all Clinton County residents. Fondly known as the Blue Bus, the on-demand transit system responds to ride requests and provides safe, reliable transportation to all county residents. This creates a more connected, accessible and vibrant Clinton County. For more information on the Blue Bus, visit mybluebus.com.
