Profile of System
Webster Public Transportation was one of the first rural public transportation programs in the state. Transportation was first sponsored by the Webster Parish Office of Community Services in mid-1973 when the Webster Parish Police Jury purchased a nine-passenger station wagon for the program.

The program fleet has grown to over 13 wheel chair accessible vehicles. The program serves the entire 534 square mile rural parish providing residents with non-emergency medical transportation for medical appointments and affordable public transportation for all residents of Webster Parish.
