"Your Ride is Our Pride"

Safe, Affordable, reliable, and friendly transportation!!!


Delta Area Transit Authority is Delta County's public transportation system.  We have been Providing Public Transportation since 1989. 



Fare Policy 


Each time you board the bus you must pay a fare.  Preschool Children ride free when accompanied by a Fare Paying adult.  If you require a personal care assistant, your assistant rides for free.



Getting a Ride


If you are in need of transportation, please call us to make a ride reservation.  Calling in advance helps us to pick you up on time and to schedule rides.


When you call to reserve your ride we will need to know these specifics:



Your name and phone number

Your pickup address

Your destination

Time you need to be there

Time you want to return

Any special needs you may have; for example: walker, wheelchair, or difficulty with steps, hearing or sight impairment


When making a reservation, we urge you to schedule a time for your return trip.  Waiting untile the last minute to schedule a return trip could result in a long wait.



 It is the goal of DATA Bus to provide the the greatest number of passengers with prompt, efficient and friendly service.  We strive to pick you up with 15 minutes of your scheduled pick-up time, but bad weather or waiting for other passengers may make us late.  Please call us if we are more than 15 minutes late.  Likewise, we can only wait 3 minutes at your pick-up address and may not be able to honk the horn, as your neighbors may object.  Please be ready and watch for the bus!!  If the driver doesn't see you, he/she may go on to the next stop, as waiting for you makes us late for other riders.  The driver is required to collect a fare prior to departure.  PLEASE HAVE EXACT CHANGE or TICKET READY.


CANCELLATIONS......  Don't be a No Show!


Please cancel at least 15 minutes before your scheduled pickup time.  If you do not cancel a reserved ride it will result in a "no show", which you will be expected to pay for on your next trip.




Shoppers or riders with packages are limited to only what they can carry.  Drivers may not have time to assist you with more.  Passengers requiring assistance entering or exiting buildings may have a companion ride with them for free. 


Make reservations as early as possible.  In order to ensure the vehicle will be on time for other passengers, the driver will not make unscheduled stops.  Allow extra time to reach your destination and allow for time spent picking up and dropping off other passengers before reaching your destination.  Be prepared for delays due to bad weather or construction.
