How to Ride


Upon boarding the bus, please pay your fare with exact cash, an MTA pass or MTA ticket. Seniors and persons with Disabilities (with valid MTA discount card) receive a 50% discount on bus fares.

Accessible Buses

All MTA buses are wheelchair accessible.

Passenger Guidelines

The Mendocino Transit Authority (MTA) is dedicated to maintaining a pleasant environment for all of our passengers. To assure the safety and comfort of all our passengers, we ask that all riders abide by passenger conduct guidelines.

Bike Racks

Each MTA bus has a bike rack which holds two bikes. Regional bus Route 65 has a rack to hold three bikes. Rack space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and passengers are responsible for their own bikes.  At the bus driver’s discretion, additional bikes may be loaded and secured inside.

Bikes on Buses

Due to the tight turns in downtown Ukiah, bikes
are not allowed between the following stops:

  • Monday-Saturday:
    Northbound between the bus stops at Wells Fargo and Perkins & School Streets. Southbound between the bus stops at Ukiah Library and Royal Motel.
  • Service Animals

    Service animals are allowed on the bus. Well-behaved dogs on leash are allowed if they can fit on the floor in front of the passenger.  Use a carrier if you are unsure about your pet’s temperament around other animals and people.

    Bus Stops and Flag Stops

    • The bus schedules show only major bus stops. In addition, you can flag or wave down the bus at any safe pullout location along the route.
    • If a stop on the schedule is noted as a Flag Stop, you must wave at the bus to tell it to stop.
