Public Transportation





The North Platte Leisure Services Department sponsors the North Platte Public Transit System, our buses transport passengers to and from any location within the city limits and are available to everyone. Service is provided on a demand-response basis.

The charge is $3.00 per one-way ride, if you book your ride on the day you want to travel. When you book your ride at least 24 hours in advance, the charge is $1.50 one way. The “demand response” service picks you up directly at your door.

  2. If you fail to cancel your ride, you will be charged a no show fee of $1.50.
  3. We ask that you start watching for the bus 45 minutes before your time to be at an appointment. (If you have a 10:00 appointment, start watching for the bus at 9:15).
  4. Please be ready to board the bus as soon as it arrives.
  5. Passengers must remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop.
