CT Bus is a fixed route public transportation service which operates on a fixed alignment on a publicly published schedule. Riders board and de-board at established stops. CT Flex is a reservation based, curb-to-curb service that operates point to point in the flex zone. CT Shared-Ride is a coordinated, paratransit (referred to as shared-ride) transportation service available within Carbon County. Service is dictated by the reservations made by riders and does not operate on a fixed alignment or schedule.
