The Transit Division provides bus and paratransit services for the Butte metro area.

Paratransit Services

Paratransit services are available for those whose disabilities prevent them from using the transit system's regular fixed-route bus service. 

Butte-Silver Bow Transit will be assuming operation of the para-transit service effective June 30, 2014. The Transit Department expects no major changes to the service and has retained the same phone number to call for service: 406-723-2354.

The Transit Department asks for your patience during this transition and looks forward to serving your transportation needs with reliable and personalized transportation service. Thank you for your cooperation with this change, and if you have any questions please contact Transit at 406-497-6515 or 406-497-6521.
