The Altavista Community Transit System (ACTS), sponsored by the Town of Altavista with the Assistance from the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, began operating in January 2011. ACTS wants to provide reliable and courteous service to all of its customers. Over 10,000 trips were provided in its first year of service.
ACTS offers a deviated fixed route service to the citizens of the Town of Altavista. The service operates six days a week: Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The specific route and schedule of stops and times are contained in this brochure. A fare of fifty cents ($.50) per trip is charged and must be paid when boarding the bus. Exact change is required. Tokens, Monthly Passes and Punch Cards are also accepted and may be purchased at Town Hall.
Individuals may request the bus to deviate off its route to make pick-ups or drop offs. This service requires a 24-hour advanced notice and can be scheduled by calling (434) 369-5001. This distance of deviation may not exceed 3/4 of a mile off of the route and must be within the Town limits. Brochures detailing the route and schedule are available at Town Hall and each bus stop.
