Area Veterans Get Enhanced Access To Services

RTA vehicle gets second life connecting veterans with health services, jobs

RIVERSIDE, CA — January 30, 2014 — Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) buses don't slip into retirement early. In fact, one aging RTA bus got a career change this week and is now poised to give hundreds of area veterans better access to health services and job opportunities.

On Wednesday, a non-profit group called U.S. VETS took delivery of the 2007 Ford Starcraft Allstar bus at its offices at March Air Reserve Base near Moreno Valley. The 12-passenger bus had exceeded its recommended service life and was no longer capable of remaining in RTA's active fleet, but it was in good condition and equipped with amenities such as a wheelchair lift.

At the donation ceremony which drew more than 50 attendees, U.S. VETS Executive Director Larry Williams said the van is a godsend for veterans needing a lift to job fairs and medical appointments.

Annual Bus Ridership Hits All-Time Peak

Agency reached record 9.3 million boardings in 2013

RIVERSIDE, CA — January 23, 2014 — With eight of the last 12 months breaking ridership records, the Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) announced today that its buses carried an unprecedented number of boardings in 2013.

A new report shows RTA buses carried more than 724,000 customers in December, a five percent increase from December of 2012. Ridership on CommuterLink express routes and Dial-A-Ride boardings both climbed roughly five percent. Those results bring RTA's annual total to 9.3 million boardings, an all-time high for the 37-year-old agency. RTA's previous record was set a year ago when buses handled 9.1 million passenger trips.

To put RTA's ridership into context: Bus boardings in 2013 exceeded the number of people who attended Dodgers, Angels, and Padres home baseball games last year combined.
