FAX Fixed-Route System Study

The City of Fresno is making a significant investment to improve Fresno Area Express (FAX) services.  We need your help envisioning a FAX transit system that reflects your and the community’s needs to improve your experience on FAX.  With rapid growth, auto-oriented development, and strict air quality and environmental justice requirements, FAX is challenged with maintaining a sustainable and efficient public transportation system that addresses your needs!

  • Major service thresholds (a policy to establish a threshold which defines a “major” service change, for example a 25% or more change (increase or decrease) in total vehicle revenue miles in service on any specific route)
  • Disparate impact policy (a policy to establish a threshold for determining if a given service change would result in a fair distribution of positive and negative impacts on minority populations)
  • Disproportionate burden policy (a policy to establish a threshold for determining if a given service change would result in a fair distribution of positive and negative impacts on low-income populations)

The event location is physically accessible. Services of an interpreter and additional accommodations such as assistive listening devices can be made available. Requests for accommodations should be made more than five working days but no later than 48 hours prior to the scheduled meeting/event.
