Pretzel City Area Transit operates Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to midnight and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Currently, no Sunday service is provided.
With over 83,000 rides per year, we are a busy operation. Often times, same-day service cannot be guaranteed. When possible, and to ensure your ride is ready, we ask that you call 48 hours in advance to set up those arrangements. Remember to include your return pick-up time as well. We run on a first-come, first-served basis. Scheduling both pick-up and drop-off times will ensure your ride is booked and confirmed. We also can reserve rides up to six months in advance, including any daily or weekly appointments you have. The number to call is 815.235.RIDE (7433) to schedule any ride you need.
