Fort Smith Transit provides transportation open to the general public within the city limits of Fort Smith. Our organization performs fixed route and origin to destination transportation services as well as a limited charter service by advance request. The fixed-route service consists of a network of buses that travel the major avenues and some residential areas within the city. All fixed-route buses are equipped with lifts for mobility devices and most routes traverse toward the downtown area once per hour to accommodate transfers as needed. Demand response or paratransit buses are available for passengers with mobility challenges that prevent access to the fixed routes or for passengers traveling to or from destinations considered outside the fixed-route network area. Transit staff is well trained and can assist you with navigating the routes, selecting optimum travel times, purchasing vouchers, or simply learning to position a mobility device on a lift or inside the bus.
Please call our offices to speak with a dispatcher at 479-783-6464 or continue browsing for further information.
For hearing impaired, please call Arkansas Relay Services by dialing 7-1-1.
