Ben Franklin Transit serves some areas of the community through a shuttle service called Taxi Feeder.

Call 509-374-3051 to schedule service.

Taxi Feeder is a shared-ride service, operated under contract with Tri-City Taxi. The service is point-to-point, not curb-to-curb, and is designed to serve those customers outside the fixed route bus
service, and ‘feed’ them to the nearest bus stop or transit center. Feeder stops will be located within rural areas of our service area with the expectation that riders walk up to oneā€half mile to feeder stops.

Fare Information:

Fare for feeder service is in addition to bus fare. Seniors (65+) riding fixed route buses free with a BFT Senior ID card are required to pay the additional fare for feeder service.

  • Regular (short) Trips – 3/4 mile and up to 4 miles from a fixed route
    • $1.00 cash fare
    • Any BFT monthly bus pass
  • Premium (long) Trips – More than 4 miles from a fixed route
    • $3.00 cash fare
    • Premium Ticket
    • Freedom Pass

How to Use from a Feeder Zone:

  • Call Tri-City Taxi at (509) 374-3051 during regular service hours, but at least 30 minutes before needed, to schedule a ride. (You can now schedule up to 1 week in advance.)
  • State your pick-up point and your desired pick-up time or the time you need to meet the corresponding bus route. (Check the Transit System Guide for bus schedules.)
  • The taxi will meet you and take you to the feeder location on the route or designated transit center.

How to Use From a Fixed Route Bus Stop or Transit Center:

  • Board the designated bus and notify the coach operator that you need a taxi feeder.
  • State which zone and drop-off location you need to go to.
  • The coach operator will notify a dispatcher to call and get the taxi started to meet you at the designated stop location.
