[ARCHIVED] Star Transit Launches Pilot Transportation Program in Cedar Hill

A new transportation option comes to Cedar Hill this summer as STAR Transit launches an on-demand bus service in Cedar Hill.

STAR Transit is a public bus transportation service, offering bus transportation in Cedar Hill, Kaufman County, Rockwall County, Mesquite, Balch Springs, Seagoville, Hutchins and DeSoto. Anyone residing in their Service Area may ride STAR Transit.

Two types of services will be offered in Cedar Hill - a same day service for trips inside the Cedar Hill city limits and an advanced schedule service to destinations within the agency’s service area or medical appointments. Both of these options are provided origin to destination with no fixed routes. Customers are picked up at the curb of their origin (usually a residence) and transported to the curb of their destination. Destinations could include job locations, educational facilities, non-emergency medical appointments, senior centers, and career-training facilities. They can take you to run errands and to visit friends as well.

STAR Transit offers discounted fares for seniors 60+, veterans, or people with disabilities. STAR Transit vehicles are ADA compliant and can handle most mobility devices. A client advocate service is also available at no additional cost for riders who may need assistance while traveling with STAR Transit for medical appointments.

For more information, to view fares or to schedule a ride, visit startransit.org or call (877) 631-5278.
