Rides Mass Transit District

What We Do

Rides Mass Transit District is a federally funded public transportation system. Service is available to anyone needing transportation. RMTD provides door-to-door and established route service. The fleet consists of lift-equipped and ramped vehicles making the system fully accessible.

In addition to our local residential and in-district scheduled route services, RMTD also schedules out of district trips.
