The Neighborhood Ride buses are smaller vehicles (approximately
30 feet or less in length) that offer residents greater mobility and
new transit options on local intra-community trips.
- The Neighborhood Ride buses have regular
"fixed" routes and schedules like the rest of RT's service, but also
offer special curb-to-curb service (not to be confused with ADA/paratransit

To request a route deviation on The Neighborhood Ride, please call

on Regional Transitís Web site.
- Each bus can transport 12-17 passengers and up to two
