  1. Google Maps

    List bus routes and schedules on Google Maps. This way people can use Google Maps to plan bus trips. The county I moved from used it and it was very effective for both locals and visitors to the area.

  4. The Bus could better serve the community by being much more reliable.

  9. New T bus schedule

    Keep the 10:04 pm bus from Turlock to Merced. Summer is here. The last bus leaving Turlock at 6:50 pm is way too early; this is supposed to start in August.

  12. My idea would be to leave the schedules as is.

    Unless there were complaints, I don't see the need for the schedules to be changed. There should have been a survey on the website prior to making this decision.

  14. Please extend bus service out to El Capitan High school to better serve our students and families.

    Please extend the hospital bus (or other) out the El Capitan High School. Many students miss the school bus and backup transportation. Many parents also need transportation to the school.
