Who are we?
The Wiregrass Transit Authority is a public non-profit organization providing essential transportation services as well as tailored transportation to the general public in Dothan and Houston County. We currently operate a fleet of 20 vehicles and provide a range of capabilities to transport individuals, groups and to accommodate the disabled. All of our vehicles are ADA accessible and are equipped with wheel chair lifts and stations.
As well as providing transportation services to the general public, we also provide contract transportation to social service agencies within the community and non-emergency medical transportation.
The Wiregrass Transit Authority is an active and vital part of the growing community of the Wiregrass region and is prepared to expand transportation services as the need is identified and defined. We stand ready to work with local governments to identify strategies to implement public transportation within their communities. We are totally dedicated to improving the quality of life for all our citizens.
What do we offer?
We offer a wide range of transportation services within the City of Dothan and Houston County. Our service area is limited to Houston County and the City limits of Dothan. Individuals residing outside of our service area that wish to use our services must arrange to be picked up and dropped off within the service area. The Dial-a-Ride is the most visible portion of our transportation system and the one most-used by the general public. There are some basic rules for the program:
- You must call at least one day in advance.
- First come, first serve.
- Service is dependent on the availability of seats and vehicles.
We also offer long term scheduling to support such activities as Ride-to-Work, dialysis, and recurring medical appointments. If you have a transportation need, call us and we will work with you to best fulfill that need.
We also offer voucher books that will allow you to purchase transportation vouchers that are redeemable for all your transportation needs within our system. Call our dispatch staff to arrange for these coupons. We can arrange to have the driver deliver them to you the next time you ride the bus. You may also pick these up directly from our office.
