Rural Transit fills a gap

Communities with less than 50,000 population served by:

  • Rural transit systems
  • Private providers
  • Non-profit providers
  • Tribal systems
  • Small urban systems
  • Community transit providers
  • Apple Health (Medicaid) transportation brokers
  • Travel Washington - rural intercity bus

Rural transit systems cover 11 million miles annually:

  • Connecting people to jobs, appointments, other services
  • Serves those who are transit dependent
  • Others who feel using public transit provides a value in their life
