Bureau-Putnam Area Rural Transit, more commonly known as BPART, is the

curb-to-curb, demand-response public transportation system for Bureau and Putnam Counties (or those traveling to/from these counties.) 

To schedule a ride, call (877) 874-8813 by noon the business day before a trip. However, since demand is so high, it is recommended to call as soon as you know you will need a ride.  Hours are 6 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday.  Fees are based on distance traveled, and riders over the age of 60 may travel for free (or a donation, if they choose.)

Gateway Services has been providing public transportation (as BART) since 1988.   To learn more about BPART, visit
