Public Transportation provides needed service in every county in Kentucky and is critical for job growth, education attainment and social needs as well as emergency preparedness. Not only do all Kentucky's 120 counties have access to Public Transportation, they depend on this mode of transportation for improved economic development and quality of life.
Kentucky's transit network includes urban and rural transit providers. Urban systems provide fixed route service. Some smaller urban transit systems use a deviated route system, providing regular scheduled service combined with a limited demand-response system. Rural transit systems provide demand-response services to patrons, depending on the patron to schedule a trip.
According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Kentucky's transit bus systems provide approximately 31 million passenger rips per year. Nearly 3 million transit trips per year are taken by Kentucky's elderly and disabled populations, providing access to health care and social services.
