RTD discontinues service on Memorial Day
Placeholder Image
STOCKTON — On Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) administrative offices and the Downtown Transit Center (DTC) Customer Service Center will be closed and RTD will not operate its regular fixed route bus services, which includes Stockton Metro, Metro Express, Intercity, Hopper, Trolley, Commuter Routes, and Dial-A-Ride services.

RTD will be operating a limited demand-response service by reservation only on a first-come, first served basis at a premium fare of $5.00 per one-way trip. This service is available within the Stockton Metropolitan Area. Priority will be given to passengers who are elderly or with disabilities. Reservations must be made by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26.

Reservations will be limited to one round trip per passenger. For reservations, please call (209) 955-8400.

This action is necessary due to reductions in transit funding, and is similar to RTD’s operations on other holidays. RTD’s holiday ridership is a fraction of regular service days, but with even higher costs. RTD’s goal is to reduce costs while affecting the fewest passengers, thereby retaining funds for heavily used service.

RTD will reopen its administrative offices and the DTC Customer Service Center and resume regular service on Tuesday, June 1.
