Public Transportation

Through our partnership with the area transit agencies, 511 provides information for buses, Rapid, Trolleys, commuter trains, the COASTER, the SPRINTER, and paratransit. When you call 511, say “public transportation” or “transit," then ask for your requested service or listen to a menu of available choices. Once you’ve made your selection, 511 can transfer your call to a transit operator.
