Turlock Transit is offering free rides on all fixed route buses during Go Green Week to encourage ridership on the City's environmentally friendly public transportation option. Passengers seeking to use this service can board a Turlock Transit fixed route bus at any bus stop beginning Monday, March 12, 2018 through Saturday, March 17, 2018 without paying a fare.
This promotion is for the Turlock Transit bus system only (does not include StaRT or Merced's The Bus) and for fixed route service only (does not apply to Dial-a-Ride service). Questions can be directed to Turlock Transit at (209) 668-5600.
Beginning Monday, February 26, 2018, the on-site bus stops for both Start and The Bus (regional providers) will be temporarily relocated off-site along the eastern edge of the Turlock Regional Transit Center due to construction activities within the on-site passenger loading areas. This relocated is expected to last through June 2018. The regional transit providers have been notified of this change and appropriate signage will be in place in all affected shelters to help ensure passengers understand where to go for the transit service they want to use. Accessible paths of travel will be maintained at all times to allow for easy transfers.
This relocation is necessary due to improvements that will be installed within the on-site passenger loading and unloading areas of the Transit Center. Once the improvements have been completed, regional transit bus stops will return on-site. Any questions regarding this temporary relocation or the associated transit project in general can be directed to the City of Turlock's Transit Administration office at (209) 668-5520 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Turlock Transit is considering a limited service, fixed route community shuttle to locations throughout Turlock that are underserved with current transit service. Interested members of the public are encouraged to attend upcoming meetings and provide input on preferred stop locations and days/hours of service. The first round of meetings (January 25th) will discuss community needs, while the second round of meetings (February 21st) provide the public a chance to provide feedback on concepts developed based on that information. The new pilot program is expected to begin in spring 2018.
While attendance at a meeting is encouraged, comments may be provided in writing as well by sending an email to email@example.com or sending a letter to Turlock Transit, 156 S. Broadway, Turlock, CA 95380. Please ensure that all written comments are received prior to the subject meeting.
