Regional Importance

Bus interconnectivity promotes a healthy population and economy, which depends on residents’ ability to travel to shops, schools, businesses, and entertainment venues. Not all residents can drive, so the bus system is important for affording opportunities for people to run errands, socialize, and reach farther destinations. For example, RTD runs lines such as Intercity Route #797, that enable riders to travel to other cities.

Transit riders can plan their trips and budgets since bus tickets have consistent prices, unlike vehicle repairs and fuel costs. The San Joaquin bus systems' riders also help reduce congestion and pollution on our county's roadways. 

Each of the county’s bus systems differ in ticket price, service range, and operation times.
