City of Porterville launches 90-day zero-fare program for transit services transition, program runs from July 1 through Sept. 29

PORTERVILLE – As part of the city of Porterville’s Transit system relaunch on July 1, the Porterville City Council has authorized implementing a 90-day zero-fare program for Porterville Transit fixed route and ADA paratransit services.

The program will go into effect July 1 and will end Sept. 29. By implementing the 90-day zero-fare, the city of Porterville hopes it will assist in the transition of the administration of Porterville Transit and enhance the quality of life of the community by improving access to services.

The 90-day zero-fare program aims to assist in mitigating potential service disruptions to passengers during the transition. This period hopes to provide an opportunity to collect data on ridership patterns without the barrier of fares, offering valuable insights for future service planning and improvements to the transit system. Implementing a zero-fare program for 90 days is an approach that looks to ensure operational efficiency and maintain a positive customer experience.
