Stanislaus Regional Transit Authority (StanRTA)On January 26, 2021 the Modesto City Council and the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors each approved the merger of Modesto Area Express (MAX) and Stanislaus Regional Transit (StaRT) forming the new Stanislaus Regional Transit Authority. The merger was recommended after a county-wide Transit Efficiency and Innovations Study was conducted in late 2019. The StanRTA was formed in July 2021 as a result of a joint powers agreement between MAX and StaRT.
StanRTA provides fixed route and demand response (ADA Paratransit, Dial-A-Ride, Shuttle and Medivan) services throughout Stanislaus County, as well as commuter service to the Amtrak station in Modesto, ACE station in Lathrop, Manteca Transit Center, Stockton Transit Center and Dublin/Pleasanton BART station.
StanRTA is the primary provider of mass transportation in the suburban, rural and metropolitan areas of Stanislaus County, California. Fixed route service includes 27 routes that serve Ceres, Crows Landing, Escalon, Grayson, Gustine, Hickman, Hughson, Modesto, Newman, Oakdale, Patterson, Riverbank, Turlock, Waterford, and Westley.
In November 2021, StanRTA rebranded the combined system to "The S" with the slogan "Ride The S". A new simplified fare structure went into effect January 1, 2022 that streamlined the previous MAX and StaRT fares into uniform fares valid on all StanRTA routes and services.
