SLO RTA Secures Loan with the DOT to finance the new Bus Operations and Maintenance Facility

The San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority (RTA) has secured a $13.1 Million Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) Loan with the United States Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) to finance the construction of a new operations and maintenance facility (Project).  The recent RTA Board approval and financial close of the TIFIA Loan mark the culmination of a comprehensive funding strategy for the Project, also comprised of Federal and State grant funds and an interim and permanent loan facility with Pacific Western Bank.

The TIFIA Loan will fund 49% of the $26.7 Million total Project costs, which includes expenditures related to land purchase, environmental, and design in addition to construction.

The Holidays are Coming! No really, they are.

This is an interesting year to plan a holiday bus schedule for, but we did it. The updated Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year holiday schedule can be found on the Holidays page, here.

Starting June 28: Return to Hourly Schedules. Continued required face coverings

Starting Sunday June 28, RTA and South County Transit return to hourly bus trips. There will be no express trips during this stage of transition. Fares will stay at the 50¢ regular/25¢ discounted, and a face covering is required to ride the bus.

JUNE 14: NEW FARES & FACE-COVERING REQUIREMENT

Effective Sunday June 14 RTA and South County Transit will implement two important changes.

Fares will increase to 50¢ Regular and 25¢ Discounted. Runabout changes to $1 per trip.
To reduce exposure to the COVID 19 virus, face coverings will be required to ride in transit vehicles. Face coverings can be a mask, a bandana, even a t-shirt pulled up over your nose and mouth. To read the order requiring face coverings, please visit our COVID-19 information page.

Sunday June 14: Beginning to charge fares on transit

Starting on Sunday June 14, RTA and South County Transit will begin charging a 50¢ Regular fare and a 25¢ Discounted fare. Cash fares are accepted and no change is given by the farebox or the driver. Riders can also purchase a pass using the Token Transit phone app or physical pass through PayPal on the slorta.org website which will be mailed to you.
