Mission Statement

Broward County Transit’s mission is to provide safe and reliable transportation solutions that link people, connect communities, support employment and contribute to the overall economic growth of our region.

About Broward County Transit

Broward County Transit (BCT) is your number one public transportation option for getting around Broward County. We can take you practically anywhere you want to go – work, schools, shopping, libraries, parks, cultural and civic activities, and other places of interest.

Our public transportation services cover an area of approximately 410 square miles with a total operating fleet of 346 buses (standard 40 foot transit coaches, 42 foot, and 60 foot articulated buses) on fixed-routes.

We provide links to Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties transit systems, and to Tri-Rail (commuter rail service). Fixed routes provide connections to our community’s multimodal transportation network, as well as system wide connections at four transfer terminals: Broward Central Terminal (downtown Fort Lauderdale), West Regional Terminal (Plantation), Lauderhill Mall Transfer Facility (Lauderhill) and Northeast Transit Center (Pompano Beach).

Free Wi-Fi is provided on the 441 Breeze, University Breeze, U.S. 1 Breeze, Express Bus Service and at the Broward Central Terminal. The Breeze service has limited-stops along the route at major intersections only, on weekdays every 30 minutes during morning and afternoon peak travel hours. Express Bus Service provides free, commuter park and ride locations, and travel along the major interstate highways to downtown Fort Lauderdale and Miami on weekdays during morning and afternoon peak travel hours.

“Real time” technology systems are available at several bus stops along SR 7/441 that displays and announces the estimated arrival times of the buses. Future technology upgrades include a web offering available from the BCT web site to allow passengers to access our transit system and to view “real time” bus arrival information for specific bus stops.

Complementary Paratransit (TOPS) service is for persons qualified under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. The service is for persons with physical, cognitive, emotional, visual, or other disabilities which functionally prevent them from using the BCT fixed-route bus system permanently, temporarily or under certain conditions.

Community Bus Service operates in partnership with 18 Broward County municipalities. Community buses service residential areas, freeing larger fixed route buses to travel along major thoroughfares as part of a regional bus network. These routes provide local circulation to passengers traveling short distances, as well as provide “first-mile” and “last‐mile” connections to BCT fixed routes.

Service Area

Of Broward’s more than 1,200 square miles, BCT buses provide service to 410 square miles. Our service area becomes even greater with Route 18, BCT’s first bus route to service the tri-county area of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach and with the express bus services to Miami-Dade county.
