Butler County Regional Transit Authority and Middletown Transit Service are proud to be a part of 2017 Bike to Work Day!
Cyclists across the Greater Cincinnati region can commute for FREE on Friday, May 19, thanks to a partnership between BCRTA, MTS, Cincinnati Metro, Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK), and Clermont Transportation Connection (CTC) to celebrate National Bike to Work Day.
The transit organizations will show bicycle commuters just how easy it is to bike and ride by offering free fare on May 19 only for riders who use the easy and convenient racks to store their bicycles while riding the bus.
Bike racks are located on the front of all BCRTA, MTS, Metro, TANK, and CTC buses and can be used at all bus stops including BCRTA's Market St. Transit Station, Farmer School transfer station, and MTS Transit Hub. Each bike rack accommodates two bikes. For safety reasons, bikes are not allowed on-board buses unless they can be folded and stowed under a seat.

BCRTA Needs Beta Testers!
BCRTA is now accepting letters of interest for positions on our Board of Trustees.
Effective January 23, 2017, there will be some alignment and stop changes on some of our commuter routes in the Downtown Hamilton and Second Ward areas. The most significant subtraction will be the removal of the bus stops at the Government Services Center for the R1, R4, and R6.
Service additions will include realignment of the R4 and R6 to better serve the Second Ward community with several stops along Front St.
Please see the link below for the updated map that will take effect on Monday, January 23. Complete rider guides and timetables will be available soon, however, there will be no major time adjustments on any of the routes.
Please feel free to reach out to our Call Center with any questions at 513-785-5237.

Effective Monday, October 17, the R1 Hamilton/Middletown Shuttle will now be serving the Kohl's Distribution Center in Monroe. BCRTA is very excited for the opportunity to partner with yet another large employment center, just in time for the holiday employment season.
