TRANSPORTATION FOR EVERY AGE!

Whitley County Transit (WCT) provides door-to-door public transport service for individuals who reside in Whitley County. We offer 12 vans, 11 of which are wheelchair accessible, Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Service is on a first come first serve basis and is limited to available capacity. We do not evaluate or pre-qualify riders. Clients may use this service for various transportation needs, including trips to the doctor's office or hospital, place of employment, or to local events. Transportation is also available for children attending daycare or kindergarten. Call 248-8944 ext. 1 for more information and to reserve a ride.

WCT is a service provided by the Whitley County Council on Aging with funding provided in part by Whitley County, United Way of Whitley County, Community Foundation of Whitley County, AIHS Title IIIB Funds from the Older American's Act program and charitable contributions.

Reservations

TRIP RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE 24 to 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE
Call (260) 248-8944 ext. 1 or (800) 290-1697 between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. for a trip the next business day or up to 30 days in advance. Trips are scheduled on a first come first serve basis. The scheduler will need the following information in order to set up your ride:

  4. Pick up and destination addresses
  5. Time of arrival at destination
  6. Pick-up time at destination (if applicable)

We kindly ask that passengers are ready 15 minutes before their scheduled time. To adhere to the schedule, drivers will wait only 5 minutes for a passenger before proceeding to the next stop. Please call if a van has not arrived to pick you up within 15 minutes of your scheduled appointment.

Cancellations must be reported in advance to avoid a "no-show" fee of $7.00 in town and $12.00 out of town.

Please note WCT is a shared transportation service. You may have to wait while other clients are being picked up or dropped off before arriving at your destination.
