WE HAVE ACTUAL, REAL PEOPLE WAITING TO SERVE YOU
Beloit Transit is a full-service transit system, which means if you need help finding your way around, call us! We’ll help you figure out maps, schedules, routes, transfer points, fare rates — anything that has to do with getting around the Beloit area. Call (608) 364-2870.
WE’LL TAKE YOU JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE
Trying to get to work, school, a doctor’s appointment, the mall, a movie, a place to eat or a friend’s house? Odds are we go there — or somewhere very close by.
WE SAVE YOU MONEY
Get this: the average household spends 16 cents of every dollar on transportation. A full 94% of that money goes to pay for, maintain and operate cars, which are the largest household expenditure after housing. Public transportation offers an affordable alternative to driving, providing the average household with a savings of $9,700 each year.
Want to do your bit to save the environment? Every year public transit saves hundreds of millions of hours of travel time, some 4.2 billion gallons of fuel and that keeps 37 million metric tons of carbon out of the atmosphere. Switching to public transit can reduce your household’s carbon footprint by 10% — and that shoots up to 30% if you eliminate a second car.
WE LOVE SENIORS!
Public transit helps seniors stay mobile and active. A AARP/Surface Transportation Policy Project report found that 50% of non-drivers aged 65 and older stay home on any given day, in part because they have no way to get where they want to go. By using our service, seniors can get to jobs, adult education classes, doctor’s offices, shops, grandkids — you name it!
