What is MCTS?

Moore County Transportation Services provides transportation services to Moore County Citizens in three ways.

  1. First we provide services for the Moore County Department of Social Services, Moore County Department of Aging, Monarch, and Kingswood Nursing Home. If you are client of one of these organizations please contact them for further details.
  2. Second we provide services through a token program that will transport Moore County Citizens to Medical, Education, or Work related appointments. An application for this program is available here.
  3. Third we provide a deviated fixed route in the Southern Pines and Aberdeen area also known as the A Pines Line. A current schdule can be obtained by clicking on the logo directly below the operting hours at the top of the screen.
