Fare: $1.50 each way. For your convenience, 10-ride fare cards are available for purchase. Please call the reservation line below for an order form.

The City temporarily stopped service during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the safety our of passengers and dedicated volunteers. We are currently operating on a limited schedule as follows:

Monday: Concord, Martinez, and Walnut Creek for medical and dental appointments from 10 am to 2 pm with rides scheduled every 30 minutes to allow for cleaning time between passengers
Tuesday through Thursday: Pleasant Hill from 10 am to 2 pm with rides scheduled every 30 minutes to allow for cleaning time between 

Due to the U.S. coin shortage, riders are requested to have exact change or purchase a 10-ride card.
