How To Ride

Catch NAT at the Bus Stop

The easiest, most dependable, and least expensive way to ride is to board a NAT bus at a designated bus stop at the scheduled times shown on the schedule and map.

Deviation Service

If you’d prefer to be picked up at your location, you can request a deviation.  Call Needles Area Transit at 1-866-669-6309 or 760-326-4348 on the day you desire the service. If time allows, the bus will deviate off its regular route and meet you at the time and location given to you by the dispatcher. Because of time and schedule constraints, not all deviation requests can be honored.

Make a Dial-A-Ride Reservation

If you are a senior citizen (55+) or have a disability, you can use our Dial-A-Ride curb-to-curb service to travel within the Needles City limits. Call the Needles Senior Center at 760-326-4789 to make a reservation.

Call the Needles Senior Center at 760-326-4789 for details and reservations. Payment must be made with exact cash at the Senior Center.
