The S Vision 2032
StanRTA is conducting a Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA), a study that compares existing transit service to what is actually needed and desired in Stanislaus County. The result of the COA will be an improved system. The S will launch the improved system in March 2023!
NEW PROPOSED NETWORK CHANGES ARE HERE!
The Purpose of Making Changes to The S is to:
- Better meet the travel needs of people in Stanislaus County.
- Match demand services with the supply of vehicles and operators.
What We Have Done So Far:
- We collected and analyzed data about the community and transit service performance to identify opportunities for improvement.
- We reached out to riders and the community to hear how they ride transit and travel to inform recommendations.
- We developed goals and service concepts to better match demand and transit supply.
- We designed recommendations to support the success of transit in Stanislaus county.
- We held public events to share recommendations and get feedback and suggestions from the community.
Major Changes Identified:

- The Comprehensive Operations Analysis (COA) will guide implementation of changes in the next year.
- The Short-Range Transit Plan (SRTP) will guide recommendations for changes and updates over the next five years. These will include financially constrained or viable projects.
- The Long-Range Transit Plan (LRTP) will recommend how the agency will work towards its longer-term goals. These goals will be developed as part of this process. @(Model.BulletStyle == CivicPlus.Entities.Modules.Layout.Enums.BulletStyle.Decimal ? "ol" : "ul")>
Why do we need this project?
MAX and StaRT became one system called The S in 2021. To make the system work for as many people as possible, both during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, we need to understand where people can go and where they want to go, and to make sure policies like fares and hours of operation make sense. We also need to ensure that the service is financially sustainable.
What could change as a result of this project?
This project will look at bus routes, the types of service available throughout the county, bus schedules, bus stops, the amount of service (frequency and hours), the quality and ease of understanding information, transfer locations, equity considerations, and fares.
