Transform Fresno Project #: 21Title: TCC ConnectorCategory: Leverage OnlyPartners/Organizations: City of Fresno Dept. of Transportation, Fresno Area Express (FAX)Status: PendingEstimated Completion: Service Launch by March 2021

Project Summary: The improved public transit service on FAX Route 38 will double the number of buses serving bus stops in the TCC project area. This is referred to as Increased Frequencies and is one of the most requested improvements FAX hears from our customers. This improvement will provide greater reliability and more convenience by reducing wait times and getting riders where they want to go sooner. All while reducing pollution through the use of low-emission buses and making it easier for Southwest Fresno residents to get out of cars and onto public transit!

Project Details: The City of Fresno Department of Transportation will increase transit frequencies from 30 minutes to 15 minutes on Route 38 from Downtown to Jensen and Cedar. A portion of this service improvement will be located within the TCC Project Area. The service improvements within the Project Area will require the purchase of two electric buses and the construction of an electric charging station.

The service improvement will begin with compressed natural gas (CNG) near-zero emission buses, which will be replaced by electric buses as soon as they are service ready.
