Fax Opens A New Downtown Service Center

FRESNO, CA (April 27, 2005) - The Department of Transportation/Fresno Area Express (FAX), is proud to announce the opening of its new FAX Downtown Service Center located at 2016 Tulare Street in the Patterson Building. The media and members of the community are invited to attend a news conference and ribbon cutting ceremony to be held at the new office on Friday, April 29, 2005, 1:00 p.m.

According to Bruce Rudd, Director of Transportation, “Given that Courthouse Park serves as a major transit center, the establishment of a Downtown Service Center brings our customer service operations closer to the heart of the City, and the passengers we serve. Providing more convenient service to our customers and being a part of the Downtown Fresno revitalization is just good business.”

Conveniently located with a Tulare Street storefront, the FAX Downtown Service Center will be open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and will offer a full complement of services including: ticket/pass sales, route information, lost and found inquiries, and FAX I.D. card preparation. Our newly furnished office is spacious and accessible to people with disabilities.

FAX is a member of the Greater Fresno Area Chamber of Commerce and will be supported by the Chamber’s Ambassadors who will attend the opening event, and conduct the ribbon cutting ceremony.
