Public Transportation

Welcome to the City of Milton-Freewater’s Public Transportation website.  The City’s transportation services are supported by both federal and state grants as well as a generous Local Option Tax voted in by our citizens.  City staff cannot thank the voters enough for their generosity in passing this Local Option Tax to help provide consistent funding in support of public transportation services to provide self-reliance, social fulfillment and independent freedom for all of our citizens.
