Media Release: Yolobus Seeks Community Input On Proposed Transit Improvements 01.25.21 11:33 am

Have ideas for how to make it easier to ride Yolobus and get where you need to go? The Yolo County Transportation District (YCTD) is hosting a virtual community workshop to present and obtain input on potential changes to the bus system in West Sacramento, Davis, Woodland, Winters, and Yolo County. Community members are encouraged to participate online at www.RideYolobus.com from now through February 26.

“A lot has changed since we heard from the community last year – especially here in Yolo County,” said Terry Bassett, Executive Director of the Yolo County Transportation District. “Transportation choices and patterns are different, particularly since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we want to know how we can help community members get where they need to go.”

YCTD has reevaluated the Yolobus transit network and analyzed new ridership data to develop a set of proposed changes to bus routes. These revised recommendations are intended to better serve the region based upon changes in employment, commute patterns, and public health regulations. Recommendations include increasing route frequency, restructuring local routes, and introducing on-demand transit in some communities.

“Some of our current priorities for bus service are to serve essential workers in their work commute, serve neighborhoods that rely on the bus for shopping and medical trips, and continue to provide commuter service to Downtown Sacramento and Davis,” said Jose Perez, Deputy Director at the Yolo County Transportation District.  “We encourage community members to share their thoughts about these proposed recommendations to help inform future changes to the bus network.”

Virtual workshop participants can watch a short informational video and answer a short questionnaire to help inform future changes to the Yolobus network. The workshop is available in English and Spanish. Community members who wish to participate but do not have internet access can call the Yolobus office at 530-661-0816 and provide feedback over the phone, or visit the Yolobus office at 350 Industrial Way in Woodland to fill out a hard copy of the questionnaire.
