How much does it cost?
Marq-Tran’s door-to-door fares are on a zone basis, i.e., the farther you travel, the more you pay. For a one-way ride in the greater Marquette area, the cost would be $2.60 for the general public, $1.30 for a senior citizen / student and persons with disabilities. The maximum door-to-door fare for a one-way ride is $5.60. This would be the cost for a member of the general public to ride from one end of the county to the other. A senior citizen, 60 years or older, would pay half that cost.
Persons with disabilities who require an aide to assist them, may do so at no charge as long as the aide boards and disembarks at the same points as the fare paying passengers.
Please note that fares are subject to change at any time.
We also have a medical call-back program. That is, if we bring you to a medical appointment, you may just have the doctor’s office call us when you are finished with your appointment and we will come pick you up, usually within a few minutes of the time you call.
Our door-to-door drivers will load and unload up to two bags of groceries as a service to our passengers, however, they will not perform the functions normally provided by an aide.
Dispatchers take reservations from 6:15AM to 7:00 PM Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM to 7:00 PM on Saturday and 7:30 AM to 4:15 PM Sunday.
