The Community Transit program is a joint project between Adams County and the cities of Arvada, Commerce City, Federal Heights, Thornton, Northglenn, and Westminster to improve transportation services for our shared aging community in Adams County. This is a grant- and community-funded program and all rides are free.
Services are available to Adams County residents who are 55 years of age or better, and individuals with physical disabilities within the same age parameters. These services are provided through a transportation broker in coordination with Adams County and the partner cities. Transportation services are provided for medical and nutritional needs. This program provides over 21,000 rides every year to residents 55 years of age or better. To reserve a ride on our A-Lift, please call 303.235.6972.
UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, rides have been reduced on buses to ensure proper social distancing. Please call at least five days in advance to ensure availability.
