RTA to Disney: 'Full Buses, Happy Customers'

The Riverside (CA) Transit Agency (RTA) recently launched Route 200, a new CommuterLink Express bus route that operates on the roughly 50-mile route between San ­Bernardino and the Disney resort area in Anaheim for the standard CommuterLink fare of $3.

RTA Media and Public Relations Manager Bradley Weaver reported “full buses and really happy customers” during the first week of the new route, with ridership that “has certainly exceeded our expectations.” He called the public’s response “phenomenal” and pointed out that Disney employees as well as visitors use the route.

Weaver noted the benefit of traveling in a bus that can operate on toll roads and HOV express lanes, allowing riders to avoid getting stuck in traffic and the stresses of driving. “We need to give our customers a reason to ride,” he said. “And we are doing just that by offering a convenient route that gets customers to their destination fast and allows them to avoid the hassle of driving on crowded freeways and paying for parking.” On-board amenities include free Wi-Fi and USB chargers.

The route connects to two Metrolink commuter rail stations and also serves Angel Stadium in Anaheim.
