Fixed Route Service
The BLT offers fixed route service to shopping destinations within Bedford, Burlington, and Billerica.  To ride on a fixed route, board at any of the stops at the times listed.  Alternatively, you may flag down the BLT along its way during the time of the fixed route run and the driver will stop if it is safe to do so.

For out-of-town shopping trips ONLY, riders may pre-book by calling to arrange rides in advance, but you must confirm your ride on the morning of the trip between 8 and 9 a.m.  For all other fixed route stops, you may simply board at the stop without calling first.

On-Demand Service
The BLT offers door-to-door dial-a-ride service within Bedford throughout each weekday at times when there are no fixed route runs. Trips to Market Basket in Billerica will be every Tuesday. To arrange a ride, call the BLT at 781-275-2255 between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. for a ride later that day.  Rides are arranged on a first-come, first-served basis and all slots may be taken before 9 a.m.  You may call for medical appointment rides up to three days in advance.
