The Beaufort Area Transit System was established to meet the general public, special needs of the elderly, persons with disabilities, and disadvantaged persons for whom mass transportation services are unavailable, insufficient or inappropriate. Beaufort Area Transit was developed through a partnership between Beaufort County and the NC Department of Transportation, when the Beaufort County Developmental Center agreed to serve as the county’s lead transportation agency.
Beaufort Area Transit is a coordinated rural transportation system made up of four, twelve passenger conversion vans, one minivan, four lift equipped vans, one eighteen passenger bus with lift, one twenty four passenger bus and one 10 passenger LTV with lift.
The system provides transportation to citizens in small towns and rural areas of the county. The system provides rural residents with access to employment, education, social events, medical and recreational activities.
