To get started, you can talk to a transit expert at the number below. Tell the representative where you’re starting and where you want to go. You’ll get personalized trip information, including schedule times and fare information. Ask the representative where to wait for your bus, or just look for the closest bus stop sign on your route.

Be sure to get to the stop five minutes early. When the bus approaches, signal for it to stop. Always check the sign above the windshield for the route number to make sure it’s yours. The sign also will flash some of the major streets and destinations on the route. If the bus is the one you want, just hop on.

You can also use the tools on the right of every page to see how to do it yourself online.

Transit Link

Transit Link (formerly Dial-A-Ride) is a curb-to-curb minibus or van service for the general public that operates on weekdays throughout the seven-county metropolitan area. It is a shared-ride service, which must be reserved in advance. You may reserve a ride up to five days in advance, or call at least two hour in advance for same-day trips. Rides are subject to availability, and fares are based on the distance traveled. The base fare is $2.25, one way, for a trip up to 10 miles.

Transit Link customers can transfer to a Metro Transit bus without paying a separate fare. Ask the driver for a paratransit transfer.

Please Note: Transit Link service is not available where regular transit routes are operating. Call 651-602-LINK (5465) for more information or to reserve a ride.
