Turlock Transit Service Update (3/20/20)
In response to Governor Newsom’s executive order and significant ridership reductions in recent days, Turlock Transit will be reducing fixed route service starting Saturday, March 21, 2020 and continuing until further notice. The service reduction will include (1) reducing overall operating hours by running Monday-Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; and (2) reducing the frequency of service by 50% on all routes during those operating hours. Odd numbered routes (1,3, and 5) will operate on odd numbered runs, while even numbered routes (2, 4, and 6) will operate on even numbered runs. Complementary ADA paratransit (Dial-a-Ride) will still be available for next-day reservations during the newly revised operating hours.
This decision is intended to maintain access to this "essential service" as a "critical infrastructure sector" identified by Governor Newsom, while at the same time reducing service in recognition of decreased ridership and to minimize opportunities for community transmission of COVID-19 with transit drivers. The City will continue to work with public health officials and monitor developments related to COVID-19 and make additional adjustments if needed. Any new developments affecting Turlock Transit will be posted at turlocktransit.com as well as our social media pages. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
