Online Ride Guide to offer customers more options than ever before.
Beginning Sunday, September 13, RTA will continue to operate a reduced schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic and make minor route and schedule changes to some existing routes, including the 12, 13, 19F, 27, 28, 31, 40, 49, 50, 79 and 208. The changes range from discontinuing a handful of trips with low ridership to adjusting departure times for better connections.
In an effort to maximize our customers’ travel experience during these challenging times, RTA has upgraded its online version of the Ride Guide, available now at RiversideTransit.com.
The new digital guide contains hyperlinks that allow customers to jump from the table of contents to a specific map or schedule. No more scrolling through the pages to find information. In addition, the maps have one-tap links that instantly connect customers with boarding diagrams and websites for business, schools, government service, healthcare centers and other popular destinations.
Unlike paper guides, the digital guide provides several advantages, including the fact that routes and schedules can be updated immediately should there be unexpected changes. Also, customers don’t need to carry a paper guide anymore because it’s all on their mobile device.
“We’ve made a lot of changes to the guide so our customers can spend less time planning their trip and more time enjoying the ride,” said RTA Chair Bridgette Moore.
Customers can also get real-time bus arrival information on the BusWatch and Transit apps, and instant route and schedule updates by signing up for iAlerts, BusWatch or visiting us on social media. RTA’s Customer Information Center is also a great resource for customers needing assistance planning their next trip.
RTA typically makes service adjustments every four months. More information on the changes can be found in the new Ride Guide and Service Change Guide at RiversideTransit.com.
