Clovis Transit will be offering free rides for the month of August on its Stageline and Round Up bus services for the first time in its 40-year history.

Stageline is a traditional bus service that runs on set routes. Round Up is a point-to-point service transporting riders with disabilities from home or work to a location of their choice and back again.

Registered Round Up customers simply must make an appointment to receive their free ride.

Clovis Transit hopes to expose more potential customers to its service, which it bills as featuring “vehicles [that] are clean, well maintained and air conditioned,” driven by “experienced, friendly drivers whose priority is to get you to your next stop safely and on time.”

“We are excited about offering rides with no fares during the month of August,” said Bethany Berube, Clovis Transit supervisor. “This opportunity not only provides a considerable financial savings to our regular customers, but it is also a great incentive to those who have not yet tried our services.”

The month of free rides is possible thanks to a $50,000 California Climate Investments grant, as part of the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program. The grant was established in 2014 by the California Legislature in efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve mobility.

Any remaining funds at the end of August will be used for free ride days in the fall.

Typical Stageline and Round Up fares are $1.25 one-way. Round Up trips to Fresno range from $2 to $2.75.

To learn more about the free rides being offered, including routes and how to become a Round Up registered user, visit the Clovis Transit website.

The free rides begin Aug. 1.
