  • Date Enacted: Jul 3, 2017
  • Dates given are approximate.

Summary

In partnership with Uber, the San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) has launched pilot program “RTD GO!” Beginning July 3, passengers taking a trip from outside the normal RTD service area to one of eight local transit centers (or vice versa) can save up to 50% (up to $5 per ride) on the cost of traveling via Uber. This discount will be automatically applied within the Uber app should a customer’s trip meet these terms. “RTD GO!” can be used Monday through Friday, any time from 6am – 10pm. This one year pilot promotion aims to make it easier and cheaper for residents who live in more remote parts of San Joaquin County to stay connected.

Contributed through a partnership between the Shared-Use Mobility CenterITS America and the Federal Transit Administration’s Mobility on Demand Program
