Santa Rosa CityBus is a public transportation agency providing bus service in the northern California city of Santa Rosa. It provides service for over 2.8 million passenger trips annually.[1]

Routes[edit]

A total of 18 routes are operated by Santa Rosa CityBus, most of them operating in loops (usually in a clockwise direction). Note that streets and areas indicated in italics means that the area is served by a one-way loop, not a return service.

On May 21, 2017, Santa Rosa City Bus will adjust its network significantly as a result of the agency's Reimagining Project, held in collaboration with the City of Santa Rosa and its residents.[2] The routes below are valid since May 2017.

Paratransit[edit]

Santa Rosa Paratransit, the paratransit arm of Santa Rosa CityBus and the city of Santa Rosa, provides dial-a-ride (i.e. curb to curb) transportation services within the Santa Rosa city limits and the unincorporated Roseland area.[17] Eligibility requirements require the passenger's disability prevents him/her from using fixed route transit (Santa Rosa CityBus or other transit systems). MV Transportation is the contractor of all paratransit services in Santa Rosa.

One of CityBus' routes, Route 16 (Oakmont Shuttles), picks up Oakmont residents who are ADA Paratransit Certified at their homes for free to take them to and from the activities they enjoy within Oakmont. It also lets residents to get a ride home for free as well. And they can go along on the daily shopping trips to:

  • Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays - St. Francis Center (Safeway)
  • Tuesdays - Montgomery Village
  • Wednesdays - Montecito Shopping Center (Oliver’s Market)
  • Thursdays - CVS Pharmacy (Farmer’s Lane)

It works as the Route 16 bus that serves Oakmont. However, as the bus travels along its regular route, it simply makes small detours to pick up ADA Paratransit Certified Oakmont residents at their homes, and then return to the regular route.

Reservations are accepted up to seven (7) days in advance or between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. on the same day as the ride. Reservations are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
