Prior to 1993 Dawson County
was providing bus transportation for the elderly and developmentally disabled.
This service was operated by the Dawson County Commissioners and the Dawson
County Council on Aging. As of July 1, 1993 the Urban Transportation District of
Dawson County was established by the voters for operation of the transportation
service. At that time the Board of Trustees made the service available to the
general public. Dawson County Transit has been providing rides to residents ever
since that time with rides numbering just under 16,000 in fiscal year 2013.

The Urban Transportation
District of Dawson County is governed by an elected three member Board of
Trustees and is considered an independent governmental organization. The Board
holds regular monthly meetings and special meetings as needed. The monthly
meetings, which are open to the public, are held at the office located at 511 E
Slocum in Glendive. Meeting notices are published in the Ranger Review Community
Happenings each month or you can contact the administrator at 377-5024 for
meeting dates and times. We welcome comments or suggestions on how we can
improve our service.
We, the Board of Trustees of
the Urban Transportation District of Dawson County, would like to take this
opportunity to express our gratitude to the taxpayers within the District for
their current and continued support. We volunteer our time to make Dawson County
Transit function but without the assistance of Dawson County Council on Aging,
the Transportation Advisory Council, R.S.V.P., Dawson County Treasurer, Dawson
County Clerk and Recorder, Dawson County Commissioners, Dawson County Attorney,
the City of Glendive and the Transit Drivers we would not exist. Because of that
spirit of cooperation the Urban Transportation District of Dawson County will be
here to serve this community for years to come.
Trustees: James Hageman, Dane Silvernale and Paul Hull
