Effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020, most City facilities, including Turlock City Hall, will be closed to the public. These closures will remain in place through at least March 31, 2020. The City will evaluate the need to continue closures on a rolling 30-day basis. Updates and changes will be posted at City offices and buildings and on a new webpage dedicated solely to the COVID-19 response: http://www.turlock.ca.us/covid19.
There are no changes planned for Turlock Transit routes, schedules, or services.
The Roger K. Fall Transit Center lobby, restrooms, and ticket window will remain open to the public during normal business hours: Mon.-Fri. (7am-6pm) and Sat. (9am-6pm).
We recognize the key role public transit plays in providing many of our residents with access to essential goods (i.e. grocery store) and services (i.e. medical) during this difficult time. We have taken steps in recent weeks to increase proactive communication and education of the public, as well as increased cleaning and sanitizing efforts on buses and in the Transit Center. Commonly touched areas are being disinfected several times each day. We will continue to work closely with regional health and transportation officials and promptly implement any changes necessary to safeguard our employees, passengers, and members of the public. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Senior citizens (65+), Medicare card holders, honorably discharged U.S. military veterans, and individuals with disabilities may qualify for a 50% discount on fixed route fares when displaying a Turlock Transit Discount Fare Card (DFC). To learn more about applying for a DFC, click here.
Turlock Transit also accepts the following two types of eligible ID: (1) MOVE Stanislaus ADA Eligibility Card, or (2) Medicare card + valid, government-issued photo ID. Individuals that may need ADA paratransit (Dial-a-Ride) services are encouraged to contact the Stanislaus Eligibility Center first because if deemed eligible, that eligibility card will also serve as a valid ID for the fixed route discount (no need for two cards).
