About Us
On May 17, 1982 City Of Mitchell Transit initiated service to the Mitchell Community. Mitchell transit is a City wide public transportation service funded by city, state, and federal funds. Mitchell Transit provides an economic transportation alternative to the citizens of Mitchell. We are here to provide transportation to anyone in the city. Take a ride on the city bus for doctor appointments, grocery shopping, shopping, post office, library, bill paying, schools, anywhere in the city limits you need, or want to go. Why drive when we are here, getting you where you need to go? 

Services
We offer on demand door to door service.
The driver is not permitted to enter a residence or building. An escort or personal care attendant may accompany you at no charge. The driver is trained in passenger assistance and will secure all wheelchairs and help secure packages and assist with seatbelts if needed. Riders are requested to limit carry-on bags to 5 paper or 10 plastic bags. Bags must be small enough not to obstruct other riders and stored out of the aisles. It is the responsibility of the rider or his/her attendant to load and unload bags. Drivers will assist if necessary.
Scheduling a ride
Mitchell Transit operates on demand, similar to a taxi service. To ride the bus please call the dispatch office at (812) 849-2151. Tell the dispatcher where you are, where you want to go and when you want to be picked up. Please call one hour before you would like to arrive at your destination, to ensure enough time for the driver to accommodate your trip.  
Hearing impaired persons can call the Indiana Relay Service at 711 or (317) 334-1413 for assistance in scheduling trips.
Please let us know if you have special needs such as if you are traveling in a wheelchair, with an attendant, service-animal, portable oxygen tank or respirator, etc.
