Fresno City said, in addition, the City’s FAX bus system will provide free transportation along normal routes to and from cooling center sites when the centers are open.  To ride free, residents must indicate they are traveling to a cooling center. 

Individuals should refer to the FAX schedule to determine the final evening departure time for buses providing service near cooling center locations.  The FAX schedule is available on the City’s website here.
