Profile of System
The Bienville Parish Public Transit provides public transportation for Bienville Parish. This transportation is available to all persons of all ages.

Transportation is the most important service that is provided by the Bienville Council on Aging. Vehicles are strategically located so that each one can more adequately accommodate the transportation needs of the persons within these areas.
