How Do I Take the Bus?

Did you know that Citilink provides fixed route bus service to most of the major employers in Fort Wayne? Check out the alphabetical listing of employers and find out what routes to take. Then go to the map on our website and see if a route goes near your house. If your house or your employer is not within walking distance to a Citilink bus stop, consider biking part of the way. All Citilink Fixed Route buses are equipped with bike racks. Each bus can carry two bikes at a time. It's very easy to load and unload your bike.

Print out the route schedules you need, use our trip planning worksheet or use our online Trip Planner to help you remember what time to be where, and you are all set to go! If you still have questions, or would like us to send out a route map or more information, just give us a call at 432-4546 and our Customer Service Representatives will be glad to assist you.

Rideshare Registration

Sharing a ride with others who are going to/from the same locations is another great way to get to work. Check with your employer to see if they have a ride matching program available. If not, let them know we can help them set this up. You may also want to submit your name to our ride matching program to see if there are others in your neighborhood who will be driving close to your workplace and have similar work schedules. Please fill out all of the information on the online rideshare registration form or download the form and we will see if we can help you find a match. Be assured that the information you provide will be held in confidence and will not be published, sold or distributed.
