Porterville launches zero-fare transit program

The program will allow the city to study and plan for future services.

Porterville is launching a 90-day zero-fare program for its Transit fixed route and ADA paratransit services. 

The Porterville City Council has authorized the 90-day program to run from July 1 to Sep. 29. 


The big picture: Implementing the program will assist in the transition of the administration of Porterville Transit and enhance the quality of life of the community, the city said in a statement. 

  • The program will assist in mitigating potential service disruptions to passengers during the transition. 
  • The city will have an opportunity to collect data on ridership patterns without the barrier of fares. 
  • That will offer valuable insights for future service planning and improvements to the transit system. 

What they’re saying: “Implementing a zero-fare program for 90 days is a strategic approach to ensure operational efficiency and maintain a positive customer experience,” the city said in a statement.
