Our mission is to provide safe, comfortable, and accessible transit services as a viable means of mobility to the citizens and visitors of Ocala/Marion County.
The City of Ocala is the administrative agency for SunTran and has contracted with RATP Dev to perform day-to-day operations and management of the system. SunTran has been operating since 1998 and currently operates a scheduled fixed-route system six days per week. The service is marketed to riders of all age groups. The regular full cash fare is $1.50, with discounts offered for youth, students, older adults, individuals with disabilities, and veterans. In addition, a monthly pass is offered at a rate of $45 per month; reduced rate passes are available for youth, older adults, and individuals with disabilities as well.
SunTran provides fixed-schedule service on seven routes in Marion County, mostly centered in Ocala, with one route operating from Ocala to the Silver Springs Shores area southeast of Ocala. Routes operate 5:00 AM – 10:00 PM on weekdays and Saturdays. The Downtown Transfer Station serves as the central stop for six of the seven routes. The Downtown Transfer Station also serves as an intermodal station, connecting the Amtrak bus collector service to bring its patrons to its train station. A limo/van service, the Shuttleliner, offers several trips daily to Orlando International Airport from this station. The Ocala Health Department serves as the transfer location that connects a route running from the Downtown Transfer Station and another route running to Silver Springs Shores.
