Why has the Spirit Bus service been suspended?

Effective Thursday, April 9, 2020, Monterey Park’s Spirit Bus transportation service will be temporarily suspended until further notice. The City of Monterey Park has been closely monitoring the use of the Spirit Bus fixed route transportation service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent reports indicate an 83% decrease in ridership due to school closures and the Safer at Home order. The City commends its residents for abiding by the order to only leave home for essential trips to seek medical care or to obtain vital necessities. Again, the intent of this action is to avoid the spread of COVID-19. 

Senior transportation services for essential medical and grocery/pharmacy trips will continue to be offered through Dial-A-Ride and Dial-A-Taxi programs. For more information about these programs, please contact Langley Senior Center at 626-307-1396.
