Eastern Upper Peninsula Transportation Authority

Established in 1975 our company operates three local vehicle and passenger ferries to the nearby islands of Sugar, Neebish and Drummond and we also operate a rural public bussing system with scheduled runs to and from Sault Ste. Marie to local areas such as Kincheloe, DeTour, Rudyard and a few others. In Luce County EUPTA operates Dial-a-Ride services with an on demand response pick up.


Click here for current Ferry Schedules  Please note, during COVID19 getting out of vehicles on the ferry is forbidden.  We are requesting passengers keep their windows rolled up until needed interaction with the deckhand. Please use a mask if able to, while interacting with the deckhands.  We expect everyone to practice safe distancing, cover their coughs, wash your hands, and sanitize.   The use of the passenger cabin is at your own risk and highly discouraged at this time.
The EUPTA Kincheloe to Soo bus schedules will continue normal runs, at this time.  The Rudyard and DeTour run is cancelled until further notice. We expect everyone to practice safe distancing, cover their coughs, wash your hands, sanitize, and sit every other seat on the bus.  All passengers medically able to tolerate a covering over their mouth and nose will be asked to do so while on-board the transit vehicle. Face mask coverings may include a homemade mask, scarf, bandanna, or handkerchief. Please do not sit near our drivers, so we can keep them healthy and driving.  The EUPTA Board and entire Employment Team appreciates your patience and understanding during this extremely difficult time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the EUPTA Office @ 906-632-2898.
