Stanislaus Regional Transit Authority (StanRTA) and Turlock Transit are pleased to announce that all rides on all fixed-route and commuter buses will be free for passengers during July 2022 as part of a joint free-ride promotion. This includes BART Commuter, ACE Commuter, and Stockton Commuter, but excludes ADA Paratransit, Medivan, and Dial-a-Ride services.
Funding for the joint free-ride promotion is made possible through a grant from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) under the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP). The Stanislaus Council of Governments (StanCOG) is providing grant management assistance in supporting these activities. The goal of the free-ride promotion is to reduce the use of single occupant vehicles; thereby reducing traffic congestion, pollution, and countless hours wasted on freeways by promoting the use of fixed-route transit.
