San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) is changing its RTD Go program.
RTD Go is now available Monday through Friday, 4 a.m. until 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. until 10 p.m. This change allows passengers to ride RTD Go earlier or later than RTD bus service hours.
RTD GO on Uber will enable people to travel from outside the normal RTD service area to popular destinations in San Joaquin County for less using the discount promo code “SJRTD18”. Savings are also available for passengers connecting at any of nine transit stations in San Joaquin County.
Passengers who meet RTD Go conditions and use the promo code will receive 50 percent off (up to $5 per ride) when riding Uber. The conditions include trips starting or ending outside of RTD service area or trips starting or ending at one of nine transit centers in San Joaquin County: ACE, 949 East Channel St., Stockton; Amtrak Train Station, 735 S San Joaquin St., Stockton; Lodi Transit Center, 24 S. Sacramento St., Lodi; Manteca Transit Center, 220 Moffat Blvd., Manteca; RTD Downtown Transit Center, 421 E. Weber Ave., Stockton; RTD Hammer Transfer Station, 7735 N. Lower Sacramento Road, Stockton; RTD Mall Transfer Station, Pacific Avenue, and Yokuts Avenue, Stockton; San Joaquin General Hospital, 500 W. Hospital Road, French Camp; and Tracy Multi-Modal Center, 50 E. Sixth St., Tracy.
Passengers who require mobility options beyond what Uber may offer will be able to take advantage of a flat rate fee of $10 per ride on JVG. The same parameters regarding hours of service and locations served apply.
“Data from the initial one-year RTD Go pilot showed that this program is a huge success,” said RTD CEO Donna DeMartino. “We are happy to continue to offer this service.”
