Reservations are taken Monday through Friday from 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Capacity and schedules are limited, so please call as soon as possible. We do ask that you call as soon as you know you are going to need a ride (please no earlier than seven days) whenever possible. Please call our scheduling office at 269-471-1100 or 1800-654-1827
When Will I Be Picked Up and Returned Home?
When scheduling a ride, you will be given a 15-20-minute time frame for your pickup (e.g. pickup time for a 10 a.m. appointment may be between 9:00 a.m. and 9:20 a.m.) You may wait in your residence until the driver arrives. He/She will honk the horn and can wait for up to Three (3) minutes only so please be ready. For your return trip, the driver will pick you up within 15 minutes of your requested return time. Should your trip times change, or you wish to cancel, please notify the scheduling office immediately.
Who manages Berrien Bus
The Berrien County Public Transit system is governed by the Berrien County Board of Commissioners who contracts with Transportation Management to operate the system.
As part of the community involvement process, Michigan public transit agencies have formed local advisory committees comprised of individuals with disabilities, senior citizens, and individuals with a strong interest in the transportation challenges for people in these two groups.
