Mammoth Express Multi-Ride Rare Reduction FY 20-21

2020-10-02T11:26:01-07:00

This past spring Eastern Sierra Transit and Mono County submitted a Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP) grant application for fare reduction on multi-ride 10-Punch passes on the Mammoth Express routes. ESTA learned in mid-June that the grant application had been awarded for the FY 2020/21 fare reduction project.

The (LCTOP) provides formula funding for approved operating and capital assistance for transit agencies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve mobility.

The approved LCTOP funds are to decrease greenhouse gas emissions by increasing use of public transportation by offering a significant fare reduction on multi-ride 10-Punch passes of ~50% on the Mammoth Express route.  The fare reduction on multi-ride 10-Punch passes would be available on all runs of the Mammoth Express route including: the north-bound 6:45am, 7:30am, 1:00pm and 6:10pm between Bishop and Mammoth Lakes; south-bound 7:50am, 2:05pm, 5:15pm and 7:05pm between Mammoth Lakes and Bishop.

The 10-Punch passes would have one rate for all passengers including adults, seniors, youth and disabled. The new fares will go into effect July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021.
