How to Ride

How To Use RMTD…It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Call your local county operation center.
  2. State your transportation need:
    where you need to be picked up,
    where you need to go,
    what time you need to be picked up and,
    if you need a return trip.
  3. The dispatch staff will schedule your trip for you.

Or if you’re riding fixed route in some of the communities where it is offered, just download the Rides MTD app to track bus location real-time.

Advanced Reservations

As of April 1, 2024, RMTD’s hours for receiving requests for door-to-door reservations have updated. RMTD receives reservation requests Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Passengers can leave ride requests and cancellations after hours using the RMTD voicemail system. No same-day reservations or walk-ons will be taken. This excludes fixed route service in Harrisburg, Marion and Carbondale, as well as evening microtransit. Again, reservations will need to be made in advance in order to provide a more enjoyable public transit experience for our passengers.
