Modesto Area Express (MAX) will implement a free-fare period from Monday, April 6, through May 31, 2020, on all fixed and commuter routes. This will help mitigate the transmission of the COVID-19 pandemic while maintaining safe and essential travel for riders and drivers. MAX is currently operating on a modified Saturday Service Schedule on weekdays.

Free Fares

  • Limit interaction between drivers and passengers while at the farebox as passengers will now generally board at the back door.
  • Provide passengers requiring ADA ramps, mobility devices, or priority seating safe access to the front door for boarding. 
  • Provide an extra measure of protection for our drivers.

MAX continues to follow the guidance of the CDC and local public health departments, to mitigate the transmission of coronavirus. MAX is deemed to provide an essential service during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This means we continue to serve riders who rely on public transit for vital access to resources, healthcare, and employment. Customers are encouraged to practice social distancing and stay or sit 6-feet from other passengers and the bus operator when boarding, exiting, and riding the bus.
