WHAT’S NEW JANUARY 2017

 

On January 8, 2017, the Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) closed the Riverside Downtown Terminal and launched an ambitious new way of serving downtown Riverside. The change, which introduced new and upgraded bus stops at more than 20 central locations, is designed to maintain world-class service during a time of expansion and growth. Downtown Riverside isn’t the only place getting a facelift. RTA adjusted several routes across the region for improved connections with other buses and Metrolink trains. The Agency also adjusted various schedules to maintain on-time performance and service efficiency. Customers can look forward to a new-and-improved Route 31, which combines and replaced Route 35 to better serve Hemet, San Jacinto, Beaumont and Moreno Valley. And coming later in 2017, RTA will launch CommuterLink Express Route 200, with service from Riverside to Anaheim, and CommuterLink Express Route 205, which will connect Temecula with the Village at Orange. Details coming soon on when these new routes will begin.
