The new regional transit system rebranded the expanded system to “The S” with the slogan “Ride the S” at the November 2021 board meeting. “The S” now represents all fixed-route, ADA paratransit, Dial-A-Ride, and commuter services of the former MAX and StaRT systems.
StanRTA provided six months of free rides on all services in 2021 while it developed the new brand and a simplified fare structure that went into effect January 1, 2022. The new fares streamline previous MAX & StaRT categories to create a uniform structure usable on all StanRTA routes. Many fixed-route fares are reduced and riders ages 0 to 18 ride for free on all services.
