Beginning Monday, July 31, 2017, Turlock Transit will implement route modifications on Routes 1, 2, 3, and 6 to detour around the full closure of N. Golden State Blvd. and Fulkerth Rd. / Hawkeye Ave., immediately adjacent to the Turlock Regional Transit Center (TRTC). These modified routes are anticipated to remain in effect for approximately 45 days, though this is subject to extension based on progress by the City's contractor (working within the intersection) and the Union Pacific Railroad, which will be providing enhancements at the railroad tracks. All routes will continue to start and end at the TRTC. A diagram reflecting the changes is forthcoming. Keep reading for more detailed information.
Turlock Transit staff is implementing two changes to the existing fare structure effective July 1, 2017, neither of which change the regular base fares for either fixed route or Dial-a-Ride services. The following changes were approved by the Turlock City Council on June 27, 2017:
Effective July 1, 2017, Dial-a-Ride reservations can be made by calling Turlock Transit at (209) 668-5600 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Reservation requests made outside of these hours will be reviewed the next business day. There will be no changes to the operating hours, which will continue to run 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday. The main difference is that the request for the trip must be made during the specified reservation hours. Same day reservations will continue to be allowed, as capacity and scheduling allows.
