What we do

Transit Systems provides transportation services throughout Fresno and Madera Counties. Some of the services we provide include accessible bus transportation for the elderly and disabled, school bus transportation, and field trip services for agencies and non-profit groups. We welcome new transportation service inquiries.

We provide safe, reliable transportation for agencies by promoting improved coordination and consolidation of available resources.

About Transit Systems

In February 1982, the Council of Fresno County Government’s Policy Board adopted “Assembly Bill 120 Action Plan for Fresno County,” as mandated by the Social Service Transportation Improvement Act (September 1979). The purpose of the Plan is to guide implementation of social service transportation coordination and consolidation within Fresno County. The Plan co-designated the City of Fresno and the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC) as the Urban Consolidated Transportation Service Agency (CTSA) for the Fresno Metropolitan Area and Fresno EOC and Fresno County Rural Transit Agency (FCRTA) as the CTSA for the Rural Area. The City of Clovis was designated as the CTSA for the Clovis Urbanized Area and is operated by the City of Clovis independent of the Fresno CTSAs.

The Fresno Urban CTSA commenced operation of social service transportation in the Fresno Metropolitan Area in April 1983, and the Fresno Rural CTSA program resumed social service transportation in May 1983.
