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.
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.
