Turlock Transit will be providing free rides on fixed routes during Go Green Week (Monday, 3/11/19 through Sat., 3/16/19). This special promotion is intended to encourage all citizens, but especially non-transit riders, to experience the benefits of public transit and help improve the environment at the same time.

Riding public transit, when you can, is beneficial in many ways. Economically, it’s cost effective - especially with soaring gas prices. It also reduces your stress levels – someone else is driving. And, it goes a long way toward helping our environment – it conserves natural resources, reduces air pollution and harmful ozone levels. When it comes to our environment, riding public transit makes a big difference." DART First State (https://bit.ly/2nk5VQd)

On Friday, December 7, 2018, the City of Turlock will host the annual Christmas Parade in downtown Turlock. The parade will include street closures that begin in the afternoon. Unfortunately, due to the layout of the closures adequate detours are not available, so service on Routes 4 and 5 will end early (4:05 p.m) at the Transit Center that day. Normal service for Routes 4 and 5 will resume the following day. Routes 1, 2, 3, and 6 will be unaffected.
If your planned trip is going to be impacted by the short-term loss of service on Routes 4 or 5, Turlock Transit's Dial-a-Ride will be available to use. Please call (209) 668-5600 at least one day in advance to make a reservation for any needed transportation during that time. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Effectively immediately, normal service on Route 6 has been restored following the completion of previous phases of work on the West Main Street Rehabilitation project. This means that detours on Route 6 will no longer be in effect and all Route 6 bus stops will be served based on the posted schedule. Work will continue on the West Main Street Rehabilitation project, but construction is not anticipated to impact Route 6.
