How can we help you?Posted August 20th, 2020
Foothill Transit can help you ride.
Sometimes to go good places, you need the right information at the right time. We’re here to help!
What can we do to help?
We can help you plan your trip. Which line should you take? Where do you get on and off the bus, and how do you get to and from your bus stops? Will you take more than one bus? When should you get to your stop? We can tell you the best route to take for fewer transfers or less walking.
We can help you pay your fare. How much will you have to pay? What’s the best way for you to save money? What do you actually do to pay when you get on board the bus? Who can you contact if something goes wrong? Which costs less money, driving or taking the bus?
We can help you report a problem or get a comment to the right person. Does something on board need servicing? Was your bus not where you expected it to be? Did you see something that the authorities should know about? Did your bus operator exceed your expectations? Do you want to recommend bus service in a certain area or at a certain time?
We can help make your ride safer, easier, and more enjoyable. What should you keep in mind when waiting for your bus or boarding? What are the expectations while on the bus? What do you do when you want to get off the bus?
Where can you go for help?
If you’re on board your bus, your operator is the best and fastest way to get help with your ride or to report a problem on the bus.
One of the best ways to connect to help is to call 1-800-RIDE-INFO (743-3463). On the other end of the phone are our expert Customer Service Representatives. They can help you plan a trip, find your bus, or get your comment to the right person. and policies are available in English, Spanish, and Chinese in our Bus Book. Whenever we update our schedules, we offer the new Bus Book for free for the first month. It’s also always available for free to download from our online E Bus Book.
All this information and more is also available 24-7 on our website. Here you can see a map of our entire service area, find our Park & Rides, and view our holiday schedules. You can sign up to get a text or an email when your bus has service disruptions. You can find out what Foothill Transit does to provide service more sustainably. How big are we? What’s our history? How are we organized?
As often as we can, we like to come to you in person. We go to your bus stops for “Meet the Planner” sessions after schedule updates to find out what’s working and answer your questions. We visit local schools to train the next generation of transit users. We take our electric buses to local events so that people can come on board and check them out. Keep an eye on our website and social media for the next time we’ll be near you.
