FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — Fresno FAX is considering making changes to several bus routes over the next two years.

FAX says they have limited resources and may need to consider various trade-offs, FAX wants to hear from the public before making any changes.

FAX outreach program consists of three main activities:

  • FAX Rider Surveys
  • Pop-Up Events
  • Public Workshops
Proposed Service Changes

The proposed service changes would help create a grid-based transit network in the City of Fresno based on routes that connect across town, operate at greater service, and provide more transfer opportunities, allowing passengers to connect to multiple destinations across the city.

The following table summarizes the proposed service changes.
