The behavior of the bus drivers has improved. They are friendlier.I wish you could take that part about essential... trips off the speaker. Face coverings and social distancing I can deal with. But telling people they're not allowed. I'll take that up with the county as well you might just be following county rules ☺️ I also would like to thank Malik, one of the transit people, for helping me with the compass card machine at the Santa Fe Depot.read more

The new all electric buses are really nice! They've got that "new car" smell to them! And plush seating.

Why the F doesn't the trolley line extend from the fashion valley Mall to Escondido?!

The bus requires exact fare. The machines are built in a way that allows for change to be given, as evidenced by the... coin tray. I paid 3 dollars, expecting the machine to function properly or be warned, but only afterward the dimwitted driver tells me it doesn't give change, and that the text saying this is in the fine print at the bottom of the machine.read more
