Effective May 31, 2013, The Madison Transit System (MTS) will cease operation. Madison Transit operates Route Deviation and On-Demand public bus service throughout Madison County, NY. Despite efforts made in the past 3-4 years to improve service, enhance collaboration, and leverage resources, budget constraints have forced Madison County to make the difficult decision to end MTS service effective May 31st. We are currently working with our partners Birnie Bus and the New York State Department of Transportation to determine if some level of bus service may be possible in the future. However, current service will officially be ending on May 31st. Madison County will keep the public informed as this effort progresses. Any comments, questions, or concerns can be directed to the Madison County Planning Department at 315-366-2376 and updates will be posted on our websites:
MTS serves the City of Oneida as well as all the towns and villages of Madison County. We are a public transportation provider with a fleet of wheelchair accessible vehicles providing approximately 20,000 rides per year. Our mission is to provide safe and reliable service that is both, accessible, and affordable to ALL the residents and visitors to Madison County.
We hope you find our website helpful. If you have any questions feel free to call us at: (315) 366-2376, or send us an email.

A "Locally Developed, Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan" is a plan that identifies the transportation needs of individuals with disabilities, older adults, and people with low incomes, provides strategies for meeting those local needs, and prioritizes transportation services for funding and implementation.
Under the new provisions of SAFETEA-LU the establishment of a "locally developed, coordinated public transit-human services transportation plan" is required for several FTA programs for underserved populations: the Elderly Individuals and Individuals with Disabilities program (Section 5310); the Job Access and Reverse Commute program (Section 5316); and the New Freedom program (section 5317).
