Making Reservations

Easy as 1-2-3 to Dial a Ride Today

To reserve a ride text, use this form, or phone Benzie Bus Dispatch at (231) 325-3000 ext#1 the day before, or 2 hours minimum in advance for priority rides. Let them know when you would like to reach your destination and approximately how long you need to be there.

We require no less than one hour in advance for cancelling a ride. If a ride is cancelled less than one hour in advance, double rider fare may be charged and this affects the available service other riders.

Please be prepared to board the bus ten minutes prior to your scheduled pick up time. The bus will wait 3 minutes maximum upon the arrival to your location.


If you are making the reservation at least a day in advance, feel free to use this form. Dispatchers will phone you with a proposed pick-up time and to finalize your plans. Using the form does not guarantee the ride. Your ride is not reserved until a Dispatcher calls you.
