Transit Ambassador Program – New to transit? We can help.

Have you ever used public transportation in Placer County?

Public transportation is part of our comprehensive system of transportation options available for all our residents, and it can be a great way for people to get around. In turn, this takes some cars off the road, which helps those for whom public transportation doesn’t make sense.

Whether you’re running errands, going to school, or commuting to work, public transportation can get you where you want to go.  You can take public transit to a variety of schools, libraries, parks, offices, shopping centers, and medical building throughout Lincoln, Rocklin, Roseville, Loomis, and Auburn. You can see all of the connections provided by South Placer County here.

Once you know where you’d like to go, it’s time to plan your travels. Transit systems can be tricky to get the hang of – especially if it is your first time using public transportation. Luckily, you can turn to a Transit Ambassador to answer all of your questions.

A Transit Ambassador is a volunteer who has been trained to explain the South Placer County transit system to passengers, regardless of their experience.  An Ambassador is required to attend classroom training, complete a practice bus ride with trained Ambassadors, and attend meetings every two months.  Ambassadors also volunteer at least 5-8 hours every month, gaining further experience answering questions and assisting passengers plan their travels.  This level of involvement requires an invested interest in and genuine dedication to providing quality support to you, the passenger.  An Ambassador will always be encouraging, patient, and attentive to our needs when giving direction – ask them a question today!

You can reach an Ambassador and get all the help you need by calling (916/530) 745-7560, or emailing
