Door-to-door transit service for Encinitas and Solana Beach begins

A new economical, on-demand, door-to-door transportation service that connects riders in shared vehicles to shopping districts, medical appointments, or any other destination in Encinitas and part of Solana Beach, was officially launched recently at a ribbon-cutting ceremony held in Encinitas. Solana Beach Deputy Mayor Dave Roberts, an executive committee member of the North County Transit District Board of Directors, spoke at the ceremony highlighting the new transportation service for area residents. Treggon Owens, president of the Mainstreet 101 Association in Encinitas, also spoke at the kickoff event. “By being creative and thinking outside the box, we established this innovative, on-demand transit service at a great price,” Roberts said. “For only $5, passengers can travel anywhere in Encinitas and any part of Solana Beach west of Interstate 5,” he said. The Flex 374 route is a groundbreaking new service to meet the local needs of residents who need public transportation, but don’t live near a bus or train station. The FLEX Route 374 is an on-call, convenient, and inexpensive way for riders to get to shopping and other destinations in Encinitas and the western portion of Solana Beach. The service operates 4:50 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. weekdays. For $5, passengers can travel anywhere in the route’s zone. COASTER monthly pass holders are able to use the service at no additional charge; and it is half-price for seniors or customers with Medicare and disabilities. FLEX 374 passengers must make a reservation at least 30 minutes in advance by calling (855) 844-1454. More information is available online at http://www.gonctd.com/flex374
