The Short Range Transit Plan is the primary planning document for administering public transit and paratransit services in Merced County. 

The plan:

  • Provides policy guidance to the Transit Joint Powers Authority Governing Board;
  • Identifies capital and operating needs based on data and public outreach;
  • Identifies service efficiencies and opportunities for expansion;
  • Provides an up-to-date marketing plan for increasing ridership;
  • Helps reduce travel by single-occupant vehicle and air pollution.
