Spirit Bus Evaluation

The City is currently conducting a study to evaluate its Spirit Bus system. The study will look at ridership, routes, and other factors to assess the efficiency of the system. As part of this study, the City is conducting a community survey and holding community engagement meetings to understand the community's mobility needs. It is anticipated that the study will be completed in fall 2023.

If you have any questions regarding the study or Spirit Bus service, please contact Public Works Department at 626-307-1320.
