To schedule a ride call 937-492-6117 (Ohio TDD Assistance 800-750-0750). Same day service is very limited so call early to reserve your trip time. Incoming calls are answered in the order they are received. The phone lines are very busy at certain times during the day. 


Reservations are taken from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. We encourage you to schedule your trip the day before. Drivers do not accept schedule changes or make trip reservations. We will do the best we can to accommodate requests for same-day service, but we may not have space available at the time you need a ride. Rides are scheduled on a first come, first serve, space available basis.

Shared-Ride Service

Please remember that Shelby Public Transit is a shared-ride service. Other passengers are likely to be on board with you. Plan for a longer trip than you would in an automobile, as the vehicle may need to make several stops.

On-time Service Window
