Get ready for a bus with faster more frequent service, a modern look and a whole new attitude. Say hello to RapidLink.
The Riverside Transit Agency is proud to launch this premium service, which will employ its own unique brand of RapidLink buses and stops. The Gold Line will launch on August 28, 2017 between UC Riverside (UCR) and Corona Transit Center along Magnolia and University avenues.
Gold Line’s weekday service will be frequent with buses departing UCR and Corona every 15 minutes during peak commuting hours. That’s good news for the 7,000 customers who catch buses every day along the busy 19-mile corridor. The other good news is Gold Line travel times will be up to 30 percent faster than Route 1, which travels along the same corridor. The cost to ride will be the same as existing RTA local bus routes.
The new buses have arrived. This fleet will continue RTA's tradition of using clean-burning Compressed Natural Gas and feature 38 seats, free Wi-Fi, USB chargers and a rack that can carry up to two bikes. Customers will also be able to track these buses in real-time with BusWatch at www.rtabus.com or on the BusWatch app.
Gold Line service between UCR and Corona Transit Center will serve 14 bus stops. These special stops are reserved exclusively for Gold Line buses and come with modern shelters, solar-powered lighting and information signage. Stops are located at many popular destinations.
With the launch of RapidLink Gold Line, RTA will usher in a new faster era of transit service with comfort, style and reliability.
