River Cities Public Transit started in 1998 based on coordination with transportation providers. Our incorporated name is Community Coordinated Transportation Systems. River Cities Public Transit has taken a leading role in coordination since the beginning when St Mary’s Hospital, Capitol Area Counseling and other agencies providing their own transportation joined together and incorporated what is now River Cities Public Transit.

The examples the founders set gave River Cities Public Transit the basis it needed to coordinate with several other businesses and agencies to this date.

River Cities Public Transit coordinates transportation for many agencies and businesses in the Pierre - Fort Pierre area.

patients that need our assistance with transportation. We provide service to all the clinics in the Pierre-Fort Pierre area and allow clinics to schedule rides for their patients or the patient may schedule their own ride.

River Cities Public Transit coordinates rides for the Career One Stop, Right Turn, Growing Up Together, Even Start, Missouri Shores Domestic Violence Center, Senior Meals Program and the South Dakota Women’s Prison.

River Cities Public Transit coordinates and manages services for the Lower Brule Sioux Tribes on their reservation. This service includes in town public service Monday through Friday and a job shuttle starting in Pierre and providing services to Fort Thompson Indian Reservation as well as the Lower Brule Reservation and a return job shuttle in the evening.

River Cities Public Transit coordinates transportation for several smaller communities in Central South Dakota. We provide in town service up to 2 days per week and trips to Pierre from Gettysburg every Thursday. We will provide medical trips from Gettysburg to medical centers any day of the week. The local nursing home in Gettysburg works with us to provide rides for their residents. We provide service to Blunt, Harrold, Highmore and the surrounding areas working with local commissions and councils as well as senior centers to coordinate rides and determine needs for their area. River Cities Public Transit operates a job shuttle Monday through Friday based out of Highmore with stops in Harrold and Blunt for individuals needing a ride to work in the Pierre area.

As you can see from the above information River Cities Public Transit truly believes in and practices coordination of transportation with everyone allowable in the communities we serve.
