County, Santa Rosa bus services start online tracking system

Melody Karpinski, THE PRESS DEMOCRAT

Upgrades planned to Sonoma County Transit and Santa Rosa CityBus could make running errands and commuting a little easier for bus riders this summer.

Both transit agencies are planning to implement real-time arrival and departure notification systems over the course of the next several months.

Sonoma County Transit’s system will allow users to check arrival status on their smartphones, laptops, handheld devices and at shelter kiosks, according to an agency report for the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors.

Santa Rosa Short-Range Transit Plan Meetings: May 21 & May 22

The City of Santa Rosa Transit Division will be holding a first round of public outreach meetings for the 2012 Short-Range Transportation Plan (SRTP), which is updated every few years. The SRTP is a planning and funding document that will guide Santa Rosa CityBus for the next five to 10 years. All are invited to attend one or both of the two initial outreach meetings.  Details of the meetings are in the attached flyer. There will be a second round of SRTP outreach meetings in the late summer.
Spanish and English versions of the flyer are attached.
Please contact Richard Marcus, Transit Planner, at (707) 543-3334 or at rmarcus@srcity.org with questions.
 It’s very important that CityBus create plans for expansion as well as contraction – or contraction will be the only path possible!
