Transit System

Students! Ride with Consideration! 

No unruly behavior.  Help the driver drive safely.
Ride quietly and respectfully.  Excessive noise is distraction to safety.
No “bad” language.  Profanity disrespects you and others.
Don’t vandalize the buses.
Protect and take pride in your buses that family and friends depend on.

The city is enforcing a citation policy to keep the Carson Circuit a safe and pleasant riding experience for you, for children, and for our elders.


Buses run every 40 minutes on the eight CARSON CIRCUIT routes:

Monday-Friday 5:20 am to 6:40 pm
(The last bus from the Pavilion leaves at 6:00 pm.)
Saturday 10:40 am to 5:20 pm
(The last bus from the Pavilion leaves at 4:40 pm.)

The CARSON CIRCUIT does not operate on Sundays, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day.


All CARSON CIRCUIT routes run in one direction, while regional bus lines run in both directions.

To reduce transfer time from one CARSON CIRCUIT route to another, all buses meet every 40 minutes at the Bus Terminal just north of the South Bay Pavilion.

All buses are equipped to transport wheelchair occupants.
