We are very happy to announce that Yavapai Regional Transit has been named the Arizona’s “Outstanding Rural Transit System of the Year” by the Arizona Transit Association (AzTA) and ADOT.
Thank you to all who helped us achieve this level of service to our community.
Yavapai Regional Transit has been in operation for 9 years. The first four years, the system was known as Chino Valley Transit. After the separation from the town of Chino Valley, YRT decided to become a 501c (3) non-profit.
This system started with 2 small ADA equipped 9 passenger buses.
In the beginning, we chose a deviated fixed route system, which did not require a “para transit” operation.
YRT’s current fleet has 5-modern 14 passenger buses. The smaller sized buses allow us to drive around Chino Valley, Prescott, and Prescott Valley’s hills perfectly considering the snow & narrow streets.
YRT runs Monday thru Friday in Chino Valley and Prescott, with 1 day a week in Prescott Valley.
Besides our daily routes YRT is very involved in our community:
- We have a 2 month summer route in Paulden AZ to pick up dis-advantaged kids, and the public, whereas we transport them to the Chino Valley Swimming Pool and Safeway.
- We help the Elks club with their “Kids for Christmas clothes Program”.
- And on Christmas day we help a local church feed people with “Don’t spend Christmas alone” program.
YRT wants to thank the AzTA/ADOT very much for this recognition.
