City Coach receives incentive funding for performance

By From page A3 | February 13, 2013

VACAVILLE — The city’s public transit system, City Coach, received kudos to the tune of $232,000 recently from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.

The funding is based on operating performance and efficiency in the past few years, according to a press release issued by the city. Ridership more than doubled over a seven-year period from 2006 to 2012 – the number of riders soared from 196,747 in 2006 to 446,109 in 2012.

The funding comes from a commission incentive program designed to financially reward transit agencies for striving to improve operating performance. The commission’s data show, within the Bay Area’s smaller transit operators, that City Coach is ranked No. 2 in efficiency.

    The only reason ridership has increased is due to Vacaville Unified School District ending their busing service..This is another example of "smoking mirrors" to obtain more tax money. Citizens watch the buses go by every day between the hours of 8am to 2:30pm...

    And they broke the routes up so people have to get on two or more buses to get to places that only took one bus before, and they count them for each bus they ride on.
