My name is Rudy P. Dutko. I am the Director of the Fayette County Office of Human and Community Services, Fayette Area Coordinated Transportation (FACT). Our Mission here at FACT is to serve the residents of Fayette County by providing safe, reliable and quality public transportation services designed to meet your needs and to help improve your quality of life regardless of your age, income or mobility requirements. Our transportation services include daily fixed-route schedules (i.e. bus services on a repetitive and fixed schedule along a designated route with buses picking-up passengers at specific locations and delivering them to specific locations) and shared-ride schedules (i.e. curb to curb transportation services). FACT is going your way. So, come ride with us. We will get you there safe and on time.
