The transit covers all communities in Worth County, as well as, Lake Mills and Mason City.  Other destinations can be arranged through linkage with other transit providers within the region.  The Public Health Office will schedule the linkage for the client on request.  The bus is available for any trip reason and all age groups.  Infants and small children need to supply their own car seat to be secured.  We request that we know 24 hours in advance of your transportation need.  We have buses that go into Mason City about 3 times a day.  We attempt to arrive in Mason City around 8 a.m.; 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
