Please be sure to have all necessary information
ready when you place your call. Remember that
you will share rides with others, so we may need
to negotiate your pick-up time.
If your plans change or you cannot be ready at
your scheduled time, please call us. Your
courtesy helps other riders reach their
destinations on time. We understand that this is
not always possible but we request canceling
1 hour before your scheduled time.

Where's My Bus?
do our best to pick up passengers as close to their
requested time as possible; there are “peak” hours
throughout the day. In order to keep our routes as
efficient as possible we allow our drivers a 15 minute
window on rides. This means the bus can show up to 15
minutes before or after your requested time. If you are
wondering about the status on your bus please call the
office at 605-945-2360 and our dispatcher will be glad
to give you the status report. Also the drivers are able
to use a “call ahead button” in their computer that will
send an automated call to your phone informing you of
their status. Please keep in mind the Call Ahead feature
is not effective if you are at a business and that we do
sill ask you to watch for the bus.
Cities Public Transit drivers will wait up to 5 minutes
after arriving at the requested pick-up location before
they leave. If no passenger is picked up this is
considered a “no show” and the fare for that ride will
be collected before the passenger is permitted to ride
again. Also if another ride needs to be scheduled the
day of the no show it is no longer considered a
Pre-Scheduled Ride and will be scheduled at the Same Day
or Demand Response fare
