New routes: 39 and 76
RTS has added two new bus routes to Santa Fe’s Northwest campus:
- # 39, which runs between Santa Fe and the Gainesville Airport down NW 39th Avenue – route map
- # 76, which runs from the Haile Plantation Publix to Santa Fe via the Oaks Mall, SW 62nd Boulevard, SW 20th Avenue, and SW 24th Avenue – route map
SF students, faculty and staff can ride any RTS bus for free simply by showing their SF ID to the driver.
If your New Year’s resolutions include improving your fitness, walking to the bus stop, or biking to the bus stop and then putting your bike on the bus, adds movement to your day. Riding the bus is low-stress, cheaper than driving your car, and better for the environment!
If you need a bike mentor — someone to show you how to put your bike on the bus rack, for instance — email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll connect you with people in the SF community who regularly bike/bus to work.
