In 2019, HIRTA Public Transit provided 2,371 rides to Waukee residents. The door-to-door service is open to the general public, including persons with disabilities. Those in need of a ride can preschedule one day in advance by calling 1-877-686-0029 or by visiting the HIRTA website. Riders age 60 and older can ride on a donation-based fare system. 

Half of HIRTA’s 2019 riders were persons with disabilities. And, the main purposes of 2019 transports were for education, employment, grocery shopping, healthcare visits, social services and worship. HIRTA was successful in providing riders access to cancer treatments, getting refugees to education opportunities and transporting seniors to the food pantry.
