Reservations are required no later than noon two business days in advance. All reservations must be made by calling the Citrus County Transit Office at 352-527-7630.

Wheelchair services are available. It is important to make any reservations requiring wheelchair transportation as early as possible due to limitations on seating capacity.

Transportation is available from pick-up locations throughout the county. There will be a home pick-up fee of $10 for those that are pre-approved from the Veterans Office.

Non-veterans of Citrus County may travel to the Villages Outpatient Clinic with veterans as seating capacity permits. Veterans have first priority. There is a fee of $10 for this service (this fee is not applicable to persons traveling as escorts of veterans).

All passengers must be ready to leave the Villages no later than 2 p.m. It is the passenger’s responsibility to be aware of the departure time. The bus cannot wait for late arrivals. If all scheduled passengers are finished before the 2 p.m. departure time, the bus will leave as soon as all passengers are ready.

Veterans need to have their appointments scheduled for a Wednesday or Thursday.
