Fares to ride the Marshall Bus System are $1 per trip, and if you are elderly, a student or have a disability the cost is $0.50. You can also purchase a one month bus pass for a total cost of $20.


All GoBus routes start and end at the City Park on Pope Street, and buses also stop at designated sites along routes to pick up passengers. Individuals waiting at any accessible place along any route can also be picked up by getting the bus operator’s attention.

If you are new to the routes please inform the driver where you would like to go, (they can help you).

Ride Instructions

Riders may catch a bus anywhere on the designated bus routes by following these instructions

  1. Find a place along the bus route that is convenient for you.

Flex Route

Riders may also benefit from our local "flex route" type transit system. The "flex route" system allows a bus to modify its route, within 3/4 of a mile from its scheduled route, for a special pick-up or delivery when a person has made a prior pickup reservation with GoBus or the rider notifies the bus driver upon boarding of their need for a modified drop-off location.

Call 800-590-3371 to schedule a special pick-up. Please call before 2 pm, the day prior to the requested service. You may call up to one week in advance to schedule a ride.
