What’s New

This section highlights recent changes.

We hope these changes are helpful and we encourage you to share this information with other passengers.

  • Route 34 is extending southward, providing service to the North Pointe Business Park, including Amazon, Ulta, the IRS, and other businesses. The frequency on Route 34 is also improving, now operating every 15 minutes instead of every 20 minutes.
  • Route 45 is extending west to add service to Justin Garza High School and Glacier Point Middle School.
  • Frequencies on Routes 3, 20, and 45, are improving and will now operate every 30 minutes, instead of every 45 minutes. That means that every route in the FAX system, except for Routes 58 and 58e, now operate at 30-minute frequencies or better.
  • Free public wi-fi is now available on all FAX buses! Previously, public wi-fi was only available on Routes 1, 9, and 38.
  • Construction on bus stop improvements along Shaw and Cedar on Routes 9 and 38 has been completed. FAX thanks our passengers for your patience during the construction process.

As always, thank you for riding FAX.

Welcome Aboard FAX!

WE ARE FRESNO’S FAST & EFFICIENT TRANSIT SYSTEM… offering 18 fixed-route bus lines and Handy Ride Paratransit Service, all designed to help you get wherever you need to go! We take pride in serving the greater Fresno Metropolitan Area with high-quality transit service – with a modern fleet of over 115 buses and a dedicated team of transit professionals. Fresno Area Express is operated by the City of Fresno as a public service to all the residents and visitors of Fresno.

FIND THE CORRECT BUS ROUTE – The first step in riding the bus is finding the correct bus route (or routes) to reach your destination. Use the FAX System Map to determine which route is best. Remember that you can transfer from one route to another to reach your destination.

FIND OUT WHAT TIME THE BUS WILL ARRIVE AT YOUR STOP – Use this FAX Schedule Guide to find out what time the bus serves the route you are planning to use. FAX regular service hours are Monday through Friday 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and weekends 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Late-night service is available on select routes until approximately midnight Monday through Saturday (see the Night Service Map for details).

CATCHING THE BUS – Please remember that buses will only stop at designated stops.  Designated stops include FAX bus stop signs that show which route(s) serves that stop. If you are seated at a shelter, or on a bus bench, please stand up, if you are physically able, to let the driver know you wish to board. If you are boarding with a stroller, please have the item folded and ready.

PAYING YOUR FARE – Cash, tickets, passes, and transfers can be used on all buses. If you use cash, exact fare is recommended because the fareboxes do not make change. Instead, you will receive a change card that can be used on future rides. Change cards cannot be redeemed for cash and will not be issued  for values less than 25¢. Have your fare ready when the bus arrives. The farebox accepts $1, $5, $10, and $20 bills. Note: Every bus station along Route 1 (The Q), includes a ticket vending machine; FAX encourages passengers to prepay on Route 1 to speed up the boarding process and keep the bus moving on time.

LEAVING THE BUS – Be alert for your destination. To signal the bus driver to stop, pull the cord above the windows or press the rubber strip between the windows a minimum of one block before your desired bus stop. Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop before leaving your seat. Remember that buses will stop only at designated bus stops. Leave through the rear doors if possible to allow new passengers to board. At the end of the line, passengers must exit the bus.

TRANSFERS –  Transfers are free with a paid fare and allow unlimited transfers for 90 minutes on all routes  in any direction. Transfers must be requested from the bus driver at the time of boarding.

LOST AND FOUND – To inquire about lost items call (559) 621-RIDE (7433). If possible, let us know the date and description of the item(s) so that we may better assist you in locating the lost item(s).

TRANSPORTATION FOR CITY OF FRESNO COOLING AND HEATING CENTERS – FAX will provide transportation to City of Fresno Cooling and Heating Centers when they are open. Passengers just need to inform the bus driver of their destination, and the ride is free.

FAX CARTS AND CARGO POLICY – FAX bus drivers and supervisors have the authority to determine if a cart, stroller, or other items are too big or dangerous to be transported safely on the bus. Riders are limited to bags or items that can be reasonably carried on their laps when seated or placed safely under, or in front of, their seats. Please refer to the FAX Carts and Cargo Policy located on our website here: https://www.fresno.gov/transportation/fax-ada-transition-plan/#carts-and-cargo-policy

NOTICE TO RIDERS WHO HAVE MEDICARE CARDS – Riders who possess a Medicare Card and proper identification are eligible for a 50¢ one-way fare at all times.

ACCESSIBILITY – All FAX buses have entry ramps for easy access to passengers who use wheelchairs or other mobility devices, or have difficulty climbing steps.  Walkers/Rollators (4-wheeled walkers with seats) must be folded and placed in the aisles.  Walker and Rollator users must always sit in a regular bus seat.  Walkers and Rollators cannot be used as a seat while riding the bus and may not be secured in the wheelchair securement area.

HANDY RIDE – Handy Ride is a FAX service designed to transport eligible persons with disabilities. The service is available to those persons who, because of the nature of their disability, are unable to use the FAX fixed-route system. Handy Ride is a curb-to-curb service provided from any origin to any destination within the service area, for any trip purpose. It is a shared-ride service, which means you may share your ride with other riders. You must be at the curb at your designated pick-up time.

Bike n’ Bus

Use your bicycle in combination with Fresno Area Express to make travel even more convenient!

Plus, it’s a great way to get exercise and to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution.  All FAX Buses are equipped with bike racks. The bike racks are located on the front bumper of the bus and are capable of accommodating 3 bicycles at a time. No additional fare or permit is required. The racks are available to all FAX passengers on a space-available basis. Bicycles are not permitted inside the bus at any time.  Please remember that it is your responsibility to safely load and unload your bicycle.

LOADING YOUR BIKE

  • Before catching your bus, remove any bike accessories such as tire pumps or water bottles that could become loose while the bus is in motion
  • When the bus arrives, tell the driver that you will be loading your bike onto the rack
  • Always load from curbside or while directly in front of the bus. Never load on the driver’s side near the flow of traffic
  • Use one hand to hold your bike and the other to unfold the rack
  • While gripping the rack handle, slightly push in on the rack to unlock and release it from its folded position. Then, lower the rack down (1)
  • Lift your bike into the rack placing both tires into the wheel slots (2)
  • Always load your bike into the rack closest to the bus
  • Pull the support arm up and adjust it securely over the front tire (3)

UNLOADING YOUR BIKE

  • As you approach your destination request a stop by pulling the bell cord or press the rubber strip
  • Tell the driver that you will be unloading your bike from the rack and exit through the front door of the bus
  • Unload your bike from curbside or while directly in front of the bus. Never unload your bike from the driver’s side
  • Raise the support arm off the tire and lay it down into its locked position
  • Lift your bike out of the bike rack
  • If there are no other bikes in the rack, lift and push the bicycle rack up to the folded and locked position
  • Step back onto the curb with your bike and you’re ready to roll!
