Rock Region Metro logo

Public Transit

METRO Connect is a 6-month ride-hailing service pilot project (initially operating Monday, Aug. 5, 2019 through Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020) for the John Barrow Road/West Central Little Rock area that uses smaller vehicles and door-to-door on-demand service to take riders exactly where they need to go, when they need to go there. METRO Connect offers a smartphone app, the Transloc Microtransit App, (and dial-in service) to schedule ride-hailing trips occurring within a set service area, during regular Rock Region METRO operating hours (6 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 6 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Saturday). Standard METRO fares apply.

For more information about this program, please visit the Rock Region Metro website.

CALS is working to increase accessibility across our service area that would include opening four branch libraries on Sundays instead of offering Sunday hours at the Main Library and the Children’s Library.  Please take a two-minute survey to let us know your thoughts.
