Advocating for accessible, affordable, safe and convenient public transit.  




about us

Friends of Transit for Kalamazoo County, formed in 2005, is an alliance of 49 organizations and 70 individuals that believe public transit is vital for economic growth and community well-being by providing access to jobs, medical care, education, shopping, recreation, religious and civic events.

Mission

To work for the creation of a countywide transit system that will provide accessible, affordable, safe and convenient public transit for all people of Kalamazoo County.

Vision

  • Public transit that is available countywide. No one is excluded.
  • Public transit that is available 7 days a week, including holidays.
  • Public transit that begins and ends at times that give shift workers access to jobs.
  • Bus schedules and fare rates posted at every bus stop, with user guides available in public places to make transit easy to use.
  • Express routes developed and utilized to promote efficiency.
  • A flexible system that responds to change and promotes innovation.
  • Regular reports on performance provided to the public.
