Citrus County Transit begins transitioning to normal operations

BOCC SealDue to the COVID-19 pandemic, Citrus County Transit (CCT) suspended the Orange Line (Deviated Fixed Route) and is currently operating demand response (door-to-door) service only.

Door-to-door service is available for the following trip conditions: doctor’s appointments, employment, grocery/supplies, and prescription pick-up.

As CCT begins to transition back to normal operations, capacity on these buses has been increased.

Pre-COVID bus schedules and times have been reinstituted for door-to-door service in each area. These schedules are available online at www.citruscountytransit.com.

CCT has seen a significant increase in the volume of passengers needing trips and will schedule as many trips as possible. Cross-county trips require a transfer to another bus at the transit transfer facility in Lecanto. Passengers will be provided all necessary information when their trip is scheduled.

All fares are being waived for door-to-door trips at this time. Fares will continue to be suspended until October 1st, 2021 at which time all fares will be reinstated to pre-COVID rates.

The Orange Line (Deviated Fixed Route) is anticipated to be up and running again in August (barring any additional delays) along the same pre-COVID transportation routes. Transit will release additional information about these services as it becomes available.

Face masks are still required by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for all public buses and transfer facilities.
