As of March 2, 2019 the City of Santa Rosa is cancelling this pilot shuttle project due to low utilization and because there already exists a robust transit system connecting the Downtown SMART station and Railroad Square with the Courthouse Square area and city parking garages downtown.
CityBus has 10 buses per hour traveling between the Transit Mall and the Downtown SMART station. Plus, with your Clipper Card you receive a discount on your train fare equal to the amount of your bus fare, when transferring from CityBus to the SMART train and vice versa. Learn more about the bus service that connects to the SMART train stations here.
The City is now offering a 50% discounted parking permit for transit commuters in Garage 12 next to the Transit Mall. You can learn more about the transit commuter permit here.
