Stockton, CA –-San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) will add weekend service to the Dublin BART station and will start deploying new and improved buses for most of its Commuter service beginning November 3.
“The expanded weekend service is a direct response to requests we received from the public during our Unmet Transit Needs survey events,” said RTD CEO Donna DeMartino.
Beginning Saturday, November 3, RTD’s Commuter buses will go to the Dublin BART station from Stockton five times a day on weekends in addition to its current schedule of nine times every weekday.
Basic fares are $7 each way. RTD passengers may save as much as 40% compared to other commuting options with monthly passes. For added convenience, passengers may use mobile ticketing app Mobile2Go to buy and use a Commuter pass on a smartphone: https://mobile2go.sanjoaquinrtd.com/
“In addition to offering RTD passengers new options for reaching the Bay Area on weekends, we’re very happy to also put new buses in service,” said DeMartino. “The new commuter buses have exciting new branding and provide even more passenger amenities including leather reclining seats, low floor boarding, free WiFi, and 110 volt and USB outlets on board. The new buses will even help deliver cleaner air with fuel-efficient hybrid engines.”
“We’ll have a bus open for tours on Friday, November 9, at our Downtown Transit Center when we will make some very exciting announcements about greater savings on transportation for seniors and San Joaquin County U.S. veterans,” said DeMartino. “I hope everyone will be able to join us.”
