Leading by example…
In 1993, the Yolo County Transportation District became among the first transit properties in California to utilize CNG technology.
A Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) bus is one of the lowest emission buses available in the industry.
The Yolo County Transportation District fleet of Yolobus buses consists of 44 transit size coaches powered by Compressed Natural Gas, six (6) highway coaches that run on clean diesel and 10 cutaway buses and vans that primarily serve the frail, elderly and disabled.
Yolobus makes 244 trips to and from Sacramento International Airport every week to and from various locations.
The transit system that never sleeps
Yolobus runs service somewhere from 4:37 a.m. to 1:55 a.m., or 21.3 hours of every weekday. Parts of our facility are staffed 24/7.
Focus is transit service on the street
The Yolo County Transportation District has just 10 in-house positions, that includes positions not just as a transit operator but also the congestion management agency for Yolo County jurisdictions, assisting them planning for and securing funding for a variety of transportation projects. We contract bus service to a company called Veolia Transportation, which employs about 115 people to operate and maintain our fleet of buses. We have been associated with Veolia since 2006 and a contract option to extend that contract to 2018 has been exercised. Veolia Transportation provides both fixed route and paratransit services.
