Free Rides from the Stanislaus Regional Transit Authority (StanRTA) continue in September on Modesto Area Express (MAX) and Stanislaus Regional Transit (StaRT)! All services are free including paratransit/Dial-A-Ride! 

As we continue to combat COVID-19, StanRTA would like to reassure riders:

  • Public transportation is safe and here for you!
  • MAX & StaRT buses are sanitized nightly with hospital-grade disinfectant. 
  • For your safety, masks remain required while riding. The mask mandate has been extended through January 2022.


  • Learn more about the new StanRTA.
  • Hear the latest developments.
  • Virtually attend StanRTA Board of Directors meetings on the fourth Thursday of every month and provide input. 

Enjoy free rides this September!
