Service Guidelines

Columbia County Transit is available for all county residents. We provide "Curb to Curb" service from the pickup address to the destination. We serve all of Columbia County and limited parts of Augusta-Richmond County with the exception of areas south of Gordon Highway:

  • In order to obtain service you must book your appointments a minimum of one business day in advance. (Appointments for Monday must be made before the close of business on Friday.) We reserve the right to decline service if the required amount of advance notice is not given.
  • The earliest drop off time is 10 am and the latest pick-up time is 3:30 pm (There is no guarantee of return service if the client fails to call by 3:30 pm)
  • Payment must be made at time of pick-up. (We accept local checks and cash only.)
  • Clients must be able to enter and exit the vehicle on their own ability. Any persons requiring physical assistance must provide a personal escort. (Medical escorts will not be charged a fare and they are required to exit and remain with their client until return service is arranged.)
  • Proper dress and good hygiene are required for service. (The driver reserves the right to decline service due to public health concerns.)
  • Packages are limited by number and size to what the client can carry and store safely under their seat. (Oversized or numerous packages will not be permitted.)
  • Alcohol and illegal drugs are prohibited in all county vehicles; we will not transport clients who are under the influence of either one.
  • Drivers reserve the right to decline service to abusive or disruptive clients when they feel it would endanger other clients or themselves. (Profanity is prohibited.)
  • Riders are required to be ready for pick-up between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:30 pm. In certain instances the client may be picked up an hour and a half (1.5 hours) in advance of their scheduled appointment to ensure timely delivery of service to all clients.
  • Clients must call Dispatch when ready for pick-up and provide their location.
  • All clients are required to use seat belts at all times while in the vehicle.
  • Drivers will wait a maximum of five minutes at each pick-up before considering the client to be a "no-show". (After a client has 10% "no-shows" in a 30 day period, service will be suspended for 30 days.)
  • Cancellations of service must be called in by the client at the start of each business day (no later than 8 am). Failure to make timely cancellations will constitute a "no-show".
  • No one under the age of 18 may ride unless accompanied by an adult (over the age of 18). (Proof of age may be required for service.)
  • No animals allowed on the van except medically required service animals.
