Great Falls Montana - Bus Transit

When it comes to getting around town, most Montanan's are pretty independent.  We like having our own vehicles and the convenience that comes with them, and with little traffic, driving around Great Falls is usually pretty easy.  Great Falls Montana Bus Route - Great Falls TransitWe even now hold the title of the City with the Shortest Commute in the U.S.  But with gas prices hovering around $4.00 a gallon and vehicle payments, insurance and maintenance costs on the rise, some folks are looking for alternative means of getting around.

Because we could have snow on the ground for up to 6 months of the year, motorcycles, scooters and bicycles are only a partial solution.

Even though Great Falls is not a large city, we still have big city conveniences like cabs and  a complete bus transit system called the Great Falls Transit District.

If you are looking for an inexpGreat Falls Montana Bus Route - Great Falls Transitensive way to get around town, the transit system just might be your ticket.  With 7 different routes, you should be able to find a route that takes you right where you want to go with a limited amount of transfers. 

Pretty much the whole city is covered from the Airport all the way to Malmstrom Air Force Base.

This system map shows where each route goes and gives you the route schedule.Great Falls Montana Bus Route - Great Falls Transit

Fares for an adult are $1.00 with students being $.75 and Seniors and Disabled riding for only $.50.  Children 5 and under ride for Free.  Punch cards are also available for convenience and give you one bonus ride with the purchase.  If you are planning a day of riding around town a Day Pass can be purchase for $4.00

For those riders that plan on riding consistently during the month, a Month Pass is the way to go.  Regular monthly passes are only $30.00 with discounts for students and seniors.

With a tank of gas in a small car costing nearly $70 to fill, a monthly unlimited ride pass of $30 seems like a steal.  Calculate no car payments, maintenance or insurance and it really makes sense.  This might be a good solution for a single car family where both adults work different hours.  The transit runs M - F from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm and 9:30 am- 5:30 pm on Saturdays, so you can even use it on your day off.
