About Transylvania County Transportation          


You may have seen the white activity bus-like vans and high top vans going through town or coming to pick up a neighbor. These vans are operated by Transylvania County's Transportation which provides transportation for a variety of programs serving Transylvania County residents. Most of the Transportation is done within the County. Our services include General Public Transportation, Demand Response, Paratransit, Fixed Route, and Medical Transportation. For more information, please contact Transportation at (828) 884-3203, option 2.

Senior Adult Transportation

The County vans provide transportation for adults 60 years young or older throughout Transylvania County. These passengers are transported to Nutrition sites each weekday. The Nutrition sites that the county vans provide services to are the Quebec Community Center and Silvermont. The county vans also provide transportation services for these passengers to shopping centers, recreational centers, as well as financial and utility locations (post office, bill payments, etc.). Contact Western Carolina Community Action (WCCA) for additional information about about Nutrition sites and transportation to and from the sites.

Medical Transportation

In-county medical transportation is sponsored by Transylvania County as a community service to the County's citizens. This is a service for persons over the age of 60 or those who meet special eligibility requirements and have no other means of transportation. The goal is to provide round-trip transportation within the County for citizens who have scheduled appointments with doctors, outpatient services, dialysis, public health or other health related appointments. This service only provides transportation for scheduled medical appointments. This is not an emergency transportation service. To request additional information, call (828) 884-3203, option 2.
