Seven regularly scheduled fixed route buses operate in the City of Port Huron and Fort Gratiot Township. Bus riders can catch a bus anywhere in the system every 45 minutes. All fixed route buses “kneel,” are ramp-equipped for easy mobility device access and are ADA compliant.
For residents living in the townships of Burtchville, Port Huron and Fort Gratiot as well as the City of Marysville Blue Water Area Transit can send a bus to your home usually within an hour, depending on when you call for service. However, we recommend making reservations a day in advance. That can usually guarantee a trip to conform to your schedule.
A special shuttle service running every 45 minutes is available to serve the major shopping centers on the northern end of the community. The Shopper Shuttle begins at the Home Depot and then makes stops at the Court of Flags Mall (at Kroger’s), the Birchwood Mall (Cinema Entrance), at WalMart and Meijer. The Shopper Shuttle operates Monday through Friday starting at 9:35am (10:20am on Saturdays). Transfers between the shuttle service and other buses are free.
