The Bus invites members of the community to "try The Bus on us" during the month of August! Starting August 1 through August 31, The Bus will offer FREE service on all fixed routes countywide. By riding public transit, residents can help reduce congestion and save money.
"We are excited to be able to offer free fixed route service again this year," said Rich Green, Transit Manager. "We hope to encourage people who've never ridden the bus to give it a try to see if they can make our service work for them." This free service program is made possible through funding from the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP).
The Bus schedules and hours of operation can be found at www.mercedthebus.com or by calling The Bus at (209)723-3100. Real-time information regarding bus locations, services and arrival times can be found at www.thebuslive.com. All buses are equipped with bike racks and are wheelchair accessible.
The Bus is the single public transportation service provider for all of Merced County and is administered by the Transit Joint Powers Authority for Merced County and managed by the Merced County Association of Governments (MCAG).
