Transportation Programs

Our Streamline Bus recently implemented all new bidirectional routes in the Gallatin Valley, and we want you to ride along! With four new in-town routes, later service on weekdays, and expanded weekend service, the new Streamline routes can help with all of your transportation needs. In additional to our normal weekday and weekend service in Bozeman, we also operate year-round commuter service to Belgrade and seasonal commuter service to Livingston. As always, the service is zero-fare because it benefits us all! Come ride along with us today.

Our paratransit service, Galavan, serves senior and disabled residents in Bozeman, Belgrade, and Three Forks with door-to-door, on-demand service to medical visits, social events, and other appointments.




On May 2nd, Gallatin County voters approved the creation of a Gallatin Valley Urban Transportation District (GVUTD) to be the future home of Streamline bus and Galavan paratransit services. This change will not have any immediate impacts on Streamline and Galavan’s current services or schedules.

The Streamline bus service operates from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to  6 p.m. on weekends, and includes four Bozeman routes along with weekday commuter service to Belgrade. More schedule and ride-planning information here.

Galavan provides transportation to seniors and people with disabilities or injuries, including many veterans, on a flexible basis in Bozeman, Belgrade, Manhattan and Three Forks. You can learn more and request rides here.


Creating the UTD was needed to ensure that Streamline and Galavan continue to receive the federal transit funds that make up the largest portion of their budgets. While the Gallatin Valley was formerly viewed as a “rural” area in the eyes of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), it is now considered a “small urban” area. This means FTA funds can no longer go directly to HRDC (a private non-profit) to operate Streamline, and instead must be administered by a local government or by a transportation district. 

The GVUTD will have its own board, composed of community members and representatives appointed by elected officials from the City of Belgrade, City of Bozeman, and Gallatin County.  

The transition of governing responsibility from the HRDC Board of Directors to the GVUTD Board of Directors is expected to take two years. In the meantime, riders can expect both Streamline and Galavan service to operate as normal. 

There is no cost to Gallatin County Voters for the creation of the GVUTD.

Since 2015, Brooke has been working with Allergan Aesthetics, Body Contouring. In 2018, Brooke began her role as Senior Manager of Training. Brooke graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Commercial Photography from Appalachian State University in 2011.

Brooke began her role on our Board in 2019. However, she feels it’s more fitting to say that she gets to serve on our Board. For Brooke, an evening at our Fork & Spoon was her first glance into our organization’s powerful work. As Brooke states, joining the Board has only expanded her appreciation for the caliber of people leading our mission and the impact of our vast ecosystem of services. While metrics alone are impressive, Brooke likes to visualize each number as an individual example of support – an extension of a helping hand, a moment of relief – given to one of our neighbors. She is grateful for the opportunity to participate in shaping HRDC’s future.

Although Brooke spends most of her volunteer time with HRDC, she was fortunate enough to build with Habitat for Humanity over the course of the summer in 2020. Her favorite place to spend time is anywhere under the Big Sky, although Hyalite may be her favorite place on Earth.

Ron served as Bozeman’s Assistant City Manager from 1990 to 2008. After retiring, Ron joined our Board in 2011. Ron received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Montana in 1977, and his Masters in Science in Rural, Town, and Regional Planning from the University of Montana in 1987.

During his time with the City of Bozeman, Ron saw the important role that HRDC has played in our community. Ron has seen that HRDC provides necessary social services to assure that all Bozeman residents could obtain housing, food, training, employment and the other necessities of life. He also came to understand that HRDC was always able to respond immediately as new community needs arose. Ron believes that the dedication, hard work, and compassion of HRDC’s staff make it a real honor to serve on the Board.

Ron also serves on the Trails, Open Space and Parks Committee for the City of Bozeman, and as a volunteer with the Red Cross. One of Ron’s favorite activities is walking his beloved dog every day, enjoying many of Bozeman’s trails and parks, like Burke Park, Bozeman Creek, and the Hyalite and Mount Ellis areas. Ron and his wife Claire enjoy spending their days with family, friends, and time outdoors.
