Section 5311:

Serving the following counties:  Clay, Jackson, Lee, Owsley, and Wolfe

Daniel Boone Transit has been in operation since 1986.  Daniel Boone Transit operates on a demand-response system, which means you must call the transit office in your county and request transportation in advance of the trip.  Daniel Boone Transit provides public transportation services for the following counties located in eastern Kentucky:  Clay, Jackson, Lee, Owsley, and Wolfe Counties.  The public transportation service is available to the general public.  This includes:

  • Wheelchair Service – The Driver provides assistance to the wheelchair client from residence, boarding the bus, and securing of devices.
  • Door-to-Door – Driver provides assistance to a disabled person from the door of a facility and assists with boarding the bus.
  • Curb-to-Curb – The passenger does not need assistance from driver and will board the bus at the curb.

Public transportation can be for shopping, medical appointments, pharmacy, education, employment or just to visit a friend, etc. There is a fare for all public transportation.  The rates are different between ‘in city limits” transportation which is transportation that originates and ends in the city limits, and “in county limits” which is transportation that originates and ends in the same county.  The fare is paid by the passenger.  Public trips need to be scheduled 24 hours in advance.  The reason for the early notice is so a coordinated schedule can be prepared and dispatched to the drivers for the next day.  However, sometimes we can provide the trip the same day.

 Public Transportation Fares:

  •    $6.00 in the city limits “per round trip”
  •    $8.00 within county limits “per round trip”
