County Connect provides information to Central Indiana residents on the programs and agencies that travel across county lines – including which agencies provide services for seniors or people with disabilities.
Who Relies on Rural Transit Providers
Watch this video to meet some examples of Hoosiers who don’t drive and rely on rural transit providers for transportation.
What are Rural Transit Providers?
Most Central Indiana counties have public transit operated by rural transit providers. The service is funded by federal, state and county governments, as well as from fares. Though open to anyone, the services are mostly used by seniors, people with disabilities, and others who are unable to drive.
Unlike city bus riders, when people outside the Indianapolis and Anderson “urbanized areas” want to use public transit to go to a job, a medical appointment or a social outing, they have to call at least two weeks ahead of time and schedule the trip with a 30-minute pick-up window.
How It Works:
Using the trip building form, you can determine the transportation options that will get you from Point A to Point B.
Many of these transportation options are on-demand response providers. We provide you the contact information you need, so you can call-ahead and reserve a ride.
At your scheduled time, you will start your trip. Sometimes your route will require transfers and the Build Your Trip form will help you determine the location for each.

Why do we ask these questions?
Some transportation services are designed to serve specific groups, such as senior citizens or people with disabilities. Providing this information will help us match you with the services that best fit your needs.
