Riverside Transit Agency makes route and time changes

Posted: September 18, 2015 | Written by: Jackie Mora

As of Sep. 13 Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) has upgraded several routes to improve service. Included in these changes are routes frequently taken by RCC students, such as routes 1,13 and 15.

For route 1, the weekday afternoon schedule has been changed to improve arrival time accuracy. At the Corona Transit Center, the route 1 westbound will stop at bay number 2 and route 1 eastbound will stop at bay number 1.

Weekday and weekend schedules for route 13 have been adjusted to increase punctuality. RTA has also added an additional trip in each direction for this route to encourage customers to ride.

Due to a low number of riders, the route 15 is no longer servicing Arizona Middle School. This change has shifted schedules for morning and afternoon weekday trips.

Two new routes have been added to the RTA service area. Route 26 will operate weekdays to connect the Orangecrest community with the Moreno Valley/March Field Metrolink Station and Moreno Valley Mall.

Route 52 will run weekdays and link UC Riverside with the Hunter Park Metrolink Station. Both routes are coming soon and their schedules are to be announced.

Specific details on bus routes and improvements can be found in the new Ride Guide, by contacting the customer information center at 951 565-5002 or visiting www.RiversideTransit.com.
