Request a ride from your phone with new GO South Placer mobile app
Published - March 31, 2023
Placer County Transit has launched the GO South Placer mobile app, which allows customers to request on-demand trips with both Placer County Transit and Roseville Transit via their phones.
GO South Placer service is similar to other ride-share services where customers can use a smartphone app to request a ride that will provide curb-to-curb service within a particular zone. Following a ride request, the app will provide customers with an estimated pick-up time, allow them to track their ride in real-time and be alerted when their driver is about to arrive. Passengers may request a trip the day of or up to 14 days in advance.
The new service will transport residents within the Rocklin/Loomis and Lincoln Dial-A-Ride zones. Rides are operated by Placer County Transit in Rocklin, Loomis and Lincoln and they cost $2.50 per ride or $1.25 for customers who qualify for discounted fares. Rides in Roseville are operated by Roseville Transit and cost $3.50 per ride or $2.50 for eligible customers.
“In this day and age, it’s important county services offer convenience for residents,” said Public Works Manager of Transit Services Jaime Wright. “This app gives people more flexibility to find and purchase rides around south Placer and we’re excited to be rolling this service out to our customers.”
Day-of requests for service are subject to vehicle availability and demand.
