Shelby Public Transit provides demand-response, origin to destination public transportation in the City of Sidney and throughout Shelby County. Connecting service is also available to Miami County. For more information see the Fares section or call (937) 492-6117.

The goal of Shelby Public Transit is to offer accessible, clean, safe, and affordable public transportation in Shelby County.

The system began operation in 1980 with two vehicles providing limited service within the City of Sidney. Today, Shelby Public Transit has eleven (11) wheelchair accessible vehicles providing public transportation service in the City of Sidney and throughout Shelby County.

Shelby Public Transit's facility at 413 S. VanDemark Rd. provides a climate controlled area for vehicles, administrative offices and a meeting room for training.

Shelby Public Transit is funded by the City of Sidney, Shelby County, ODOT Office of Transit, and the Federal Transit Adminstration. Funding is also provided by Title III of the Older Americans Act and is administered through the Area Agency on Aging PSA 2.

Area Agency on Aging clients may make voluntary contributions towards the cost of their Title III funded service. However, service will not be denied to passengers who are unable to make a contribution.

Origin to destination service is provided from your pick-up location to your dropoff destination. 

Any passenger may request the use of the lift to get on or off the vehicle.

Passenger Assistance is available upon request. Please let our dispatcher know if you have any special mobility needs, require assistance to and from the vehicle or need additional boarding time.

The driver will secure all wheelchairs with a four-point securement/lap belt system. The driver will also secure all walkers and oxygen tanks and assist with getting the wheelchair on and off the vehicle.

Shelby Public Transit works in cooperation with Shelby County human services agencies and various service organizations to serve Shelby County.
