ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - Alachua County has partnered with MV Transportation and is offering the MV Connector. This bus service transports citizens from Alachua, High Springs, Archer and Newberry to the City of Gainesville.

The MV Connector can be boarded at stops designated by an Alachua County MV Connector sign at regularly scheduled times (similar to RTS bus stops). For those unable to get to a stop on the Connector route, Premium Curbside Service can be requested. The Premium Curbside Service will pick up citizens (and drop off) within 3/4 of a mile from the regular service route. These routes are included in attached brochures below.

For a complete brochure for each route (including schedules and detailed route information), click the desired location:
