Golden Gate Transit service changes begin

Passengers on Golden Gate Transit experienced the agency’s new service changes for the first time Monday.

Earlier this year, the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District approved service reductions to its bus fleet to help make up a five-year, $132 million budget deficit. As a result, several routes scheduled to bring passengers from the North Bay to San Francisco’s Civic Center were either eliminated or rerouted. The bridge district’s decision to eliminate or reduce routes was based on low ridership figures.

While the district did eliminate several lines, a new express route from Santa Rosa to San Francisco’s Civic Center was introduced Monday. More information about the service changes can be located here.
