About Makah Transit
The Makah Public Transit Program received a Capital Grant to purchase a passenger bus in 1998, and began operations in August 1999. The Makah Transit has received WSDOT Operating Assistance since we began operations. The total annual operating budget for 2009-2011 is $282,772.
Makah Public Transit serves the community of the Makah Indian Reservation that is located on the northwestern tip of the Olympic Peninsula in Clallam County. The Makah Public Transit service area consists of a 16 mile fixed route within the Neah Bay village and surrounding housing areas. The reservation is extremely isolated from other communities such as Port Angeles, the major commercial center, which is 75 miles from Neah Bay. Seattle is 150 miles away, and Forks is the closest town being 60 miles away. Makah Transit connects with Clallam Transit three times daily on Monday thru Friday. Clallam Transit provides residents with links to Port Angeles, and Forks as well as connections to West Jefferson County via Jefferson Transit.
Makah Public Transit operates year round with the exception of Holidays and weekends. Makah Public Transit operates 5 days a week, 7:00 a.m. through 9:35 p.m. Makah Public Transit Schedule is designed to accommodate the Makah Tribe's Employee Park and Ride, and has a 2-hour block for Special Pickups for the Elderly 62 and over and disabled persons.
