Brian James, Planning and Marketing Manager for El Dorado Transit, provided an overview and insight to the operations, current and new routes, and plans for the future. Brian has been with EDT for two years arriving from a business and marketing background. He had a great start, having graduated locally from Oakridge High School.

El Dorado Transit began service in 1975 primarily serving seniors and persons with disabilities in the Placerville area. Public transit was added in 1980 with commuter routes being added in 1988. This county service began with six-busses growing to the sixty-vehicles today and serving over 400,000 rides annually employing 80 workers ranging from front-office staff and administration to drivers and maintenance crews.
EDT's Demand Service includes Dial-a-Ride, Sac-Med (providing non-emergency medical transportation to Sacramento), ADA Complimentary Service, Adult-Day-Care and MORE (service to persons with disabilities working with the MORE training agency).  Service also includes Local Fixed Routes (such as Cameron Park/El Dorado Hills: Route 40/70), Commuter Routes to Light Rail and Sacramento and transfer to Folsom Stage Lines, Sacramento Regional Transit and AMTRAK.
Brian provided an update on our newest route through Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills. Running each hour, the rider can arrive at both El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park Community Centers, as well as shopping and restaurants in a timely manner.
In conclusion, Brian shared just how easy and inexpensive  it is to ride El Dorado Transit routes, by  accessing routes, stops, times, and tickets on line at or contact by phone at 530-642-5383 and obtain information on rider options such as Connect Card, Route Shout 2.0 rider ap., and sign-up for rider alerts on your email.
