Due to an overwhelming response by residents, Clovis Transit will continue to offer free rides through October for customers using both Stageline and Round Up services.
Since Clovis Transit began offering free rides on August 1st, ridership has increased by 27%.
Bethany Berube, Clovis Transit Supervisor said, “It has been exciting to see both new and returning users experience all that our transit system has to offer. We are excited to be able to extend our free rides program through October and hope many more residents will take the opportunity to try out this fantastic service.”
Taking advantage of the opportunity to ride for free is simple. Stageline is a traditional bus service which runs on set routes. Riders find their route online and then arrive at the pickup location at the listed time. Board and ride for free!
Round Up is a point to point service taking customers with disabilities from home or work to a location of their choice and back again. Simply make your ride appointment as usual and be ready to ride for free. You must be a registered Round Up customer to use this service.
All Clovis Transit vehicles are clean, well maintained and air conditioned. They are driven by experienced, friendly drivers whose priority is to get you to your next stop safely and on time.
In addition to being a convenient and economical way to travel, public transportation reduces traffic and air pollution in our community.
The additional free rides are being provided by a California Climate Investments grant which was established in 2014 by the California Legislature to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve mobility.
