San Joaquin RTD breaks ground on new Regional Transportation Center!

San Joaquin RTD breaks ground on new Regional Transportation Center!

It was the culmination of seven years of planning Friday morning as San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SJRTD) began construction on its $51.1 million Regional Transportation Center (RTC) in east Stockton. The RTC will replace an aging overcrowded facility originally designed for a fleet of 50 buses, less than half of SJRTD's current fleet. Funding was provided by Federal, state and local agencies. SJRTD CEO Donna DeMartino says approximately $1 million in design costs were saved by arranging for the design copying of Orange County Transit Authority's RTC built in 2008. Congressman Jerry McNerney speaking at Friday's festivities called SJRTD "A model for public transportation in the state of California."
