Transit Services

Transit is a major program for the Three Rivers Regional Commission. TRRC transit programs in the 10-county area are operated on scheduled demand, meaning that riders must schedule a trip at least 24 hours in advance.

Three Rivers Regional Transit System

Member governments that make up the Three Rivers Regional Commission (TRRC) participate in a regional public transportation service area that includes:

  • Butts County
  • Lamar County
  • Meriwether County
  • Pike County
  • Spalding County
  • Upson County

The regional public transportation program provides public transportation for residents of Butts, Lamar, Meriwether, Pike, Spalding, and Upson Counties, and has operated in the region since 1999. The regional public transportation program is administered by the Three Rivers Regional Commission on behalf of its participating governments. The regional public transportation program operates under a “demand response” model which means that there are no fixed routes, bus stops, or pick up times. With a demand response model residents call in and order a trip 24 hours in advance, and daily routes are generated based on the destinations requested.

The transportation operator will attempt to accommodate all callers for the times they request. During peak times (8:00 am to 10:00 am and 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm) the system may be at or near full capacity, and trips scheduled during off peak times (10:00 am to 1:30 pm) have the most seating capacity available. In order to schedule a trip on the public transportation system, please call 1-855-407-RIDE (7433). The fee is $2.00 per one way trip ($3.00 in Meriwether County only), and the service is offered Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
