Northeast Richland Pilot Flex Route General Information:

The COMET is currently striving to accommodate the transit needs of citizens by providing convenient, accessible, and reliable transportation services to Northeast Richland.  The development of a flexible route will assist in creating a more convenient means for individuals to commute to various destinations.

  • The flexible route will enable citizens to travel anywhere within the service area as well as connect passengers to Routes 101, 23, and 30.
  • The flexible route will utilize vans, which have seating for 13 passengers and 4 wheel chairs.
  • Riders will need to call the existing DART line (803) 255-7123 to reserve a time slot for pickup by 5pm before the day of travel or on Saturday for Monday travel.
  • During the pilot there will be no fare; passengers transferring to a fixed route will pay on the bus they board.
