Key West Transit is accessible every day for Seniors
All City of Key West residents, age 60 and older, and 100% Service-Connected Disabled U.S. Armed Forces Veterans (any age) may use all City Bus Routes at no charge.
On the second Saturday of each month, all bus service is free to ALL seniors.
- The bus stop on College Road & US1 has been moved slightly closer to the hospital for public safety.
Marathon Fairfield Inn Bus stop is located by the entrance to the Fairfield Inn on U.S. 1, Effective May 26. The Lower Keys Shuttle will no longer pull into the Fairfield Inn parking lot. New Cutaways added to Key West Public Transit Fleet.
You may have noticed the newest vehicle type in the Key West public transit fleet on the streets lately. They are called cutaways, are A.D.A. compliant, and can transport 14 passengers. When ridership is typically lower, these vehicles are integrated into the city bus routes. They are a bit quieter and easier to maneuver.
By using the cutaways along with the existing 30-and 35-foot buses, the City of Key West is trying to maximize transportation services to the riding public in the safest, most efficient, and environmentally conscious method possible.
