Outlying Area Services in Delta County

 DATA Bus currently only receives millage support from the cities of Escanaba and Gladstone, therefore, service in those areas is our main focus.  DATA Bus does go into the outlying areas that do not currently pay millage for contracted rides for local agencies.  The times and areas we are currently in the "non-participating" areas are:
