In response to the San Joaquin County Office of Education’s announcement of temporary school closure for all schools within the county, San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) will suspend the service of its 340, 360, 380, and 390 routes that serve the student population of the county. This service revision began with school closures on Monday, March 16.
RTD will continue to run its regular schedule for all other routes despite temporary suspension of the school routes.
“We have always been proud to be the transportation service of choice for the residents we serve,” said RTD Board Chair Gary Giovanetti. “These words have never meant so much as they have the last few days.”
“Every day I see our bus operators come to work to serve our passengers,” added RTD CEO Gloria Salazar. “Similar to first responders, our bus operators are on the front lines even in these uncertain times. We thank them for their service.”
Schools are anticipated to reopen on April 6 so RTD will be prepared to reinstate the suspended service at that time or when it is needed, depending on the circumstance.
