Ride Free on Route 130 Through June 2024

Starting on June 1, 2023, Route 130 is free for everyone to ride until June 30, 2024! This is made possible by a grant called the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP) provided by the California’s Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in an effort to reduce carbon emissions of single occupancy vehicles.
