Special Transportation Services

Dial-A-Bus for Special Needs

The Special Transportation Fund service provides wheelchair accessible, origin to destination transportation for Benton County residents who are:

  • Individuals 60 years of age and over
  • People of all ages with disabilities who are unable to access fixed route bus service or personal transportation in their area

The criteria for determining disability eligibility for STF Dial-a-Bus services is similar to those used by the Corvallis Transit System’s (CTS) Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) paratransit service.
This service is provided under contract by Benton County Dial-a-Bus, a community non-profit agency.
