Kootenai County Transit (Citylink)
Citylink is a shared logo by two separate transit entities, one transit system in Kootenai County and a separate transit system in Benewah
County. Citylink in Kootenai County is a small urban system serving Post Falls, Huetter, Coeur d'Alene, Dalton Gardens, and Hayden.
The Kootenai County Transit System is partially funded by federal and state funds awarded to Kootenai County and as the transit authority,
Kootenai County, is responsible for the oversight and management of the Kootenai County Transit System. Grant matching funds are provided
by participating cities, by the County and by voluntary investment provided by Kootenai Health and the Coeur d'Alene Tribe.
Coeur d'Alene Tribe Transit (Citylink)
The Coeur d'Alene Tribe manages and operates the rural system of Citylink that serves the southern portion of Kootenai County and an area
within Benewah County. The Coeur d'Alene Tribe's rural system also directly receives, and is responsible for, oversight and management of
their federal and state funding. The buses you see leaving the transit center and traveling down to the Casino and to Plummer are part of
the Tribe's rural Citylink route.

Kootenai County Paratransit Service
Paratransit service in Kootenai County is provided cooperatively by Kootenai County, through MV Transportation and Kootenai Health.
Kootenai County, though MV Transportation, provides Paratransit as a complementary service to fixed route bus service for people who are
eligible under the Department of Transportation's, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Paratransit is an origin-to-destination shared ride
transportation service for people who because of the effects of their disability are not able to utilize the regular fixed route bus service
either some or all of the time. Eligible riders, and levels of service, are determined through an application, interview and/or assessment
Kootenai County will soon be offering expanded service in the form of a Dial-a-Ride option for seniors and for those with disabilities outside
of the paratransit area.
ADA Paratransit service is provided during the same hours as the fixed route, from 6:00 AM to 10:00PM during weekdays, 7:00 AM to 10:00PM
Saturdays, and 7:00AM to 10:00PM Sundays.
