Indiana’s Rural Transit Providers
The Indiana Department of Transportation runs a long-standing federal program to provide public transportation in non-urbanized areas through grants to county-wide service providers. These “rural transit providers” provide services in the nine Central Indiana counties. Usually the services are “on-demand,” that is customers make reservations at least 24 hours in advance and receive door-to-door service.
