Public Transit System Awareness Program

Bus Picture A Decatur Public Transit System representative would be happy to visit your school, organization or community group to give a presentation on how to utilize the various services offered by the Decatur Public Transit System. It is our goal for the community to gain a better understanding of the city buses, the trolleys, the van and taxi programs for the disabled under "Operation Uplift", and how best to use all of them. Presentations can be tailored to fit the needs of any group, large or small.

Please call or e-mail the DPTS administrative offices to schedule a presentation:
