Effective September 13, 2015, existing portions of Route 7 and Route 8 will merge into a brand-new Route 8. The new route will essentially loop around Lake Elsinore using portions of Grand Avenue, Mission Trail and Lakeshore Drive with connections to other RTA routes at the Wildomar Independent and Assisted Living Center, Walmart and Lake Elsinore Outlet Center. The service will be divided into two loops: one that travels clockwise around the lake and another that travels counter-clockwise. Due to low ridership, service along portions of Machado Street and stops on Casino Drive will be discontinued. In addition, an improved Route 23 will be extended to connect with the new Route 8 at the Wildomar Independent and Assisted Living Center. Schedules can be viewed at RiversideTransit.com or inside the new Ride Guides.
