Coalinga Transit


The mission of the Coalinga Transit System is to promote and provide a safe and reliable transit service to the citizens of Coalinga.


The Dial-A-Ride Program provides transportation services locally only within the city limits of Coalinga and operates five (5) days a week Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. thru 4:15 p.m. with the exception of holidays.

The program is publicly funded and provides transportation services to the elderly (65+), disabled, low income, and general public patrons. The Dial-A-Ride Program is designed to help passengers with the opportunity to benefit from local social events, community services and to help them make personal local appointments.
