What’s the schedule?
For most community events, we run as a ‘circulator’ with service every 15 to 30 minutes, or as otherwise noted for each event.
For events with fixed start times (such as movies, hikes, or a class), we publish a schedule with specific pick-up and return times for each stop
What type of vehicles are used?
Depending on the event, we use either vans or mini-buses (or a combination). All vehicles are ADA accessible. For more information on ADA accessibility and additional services available, click here.
What’s the new Summer Shuttle?
This is a pilot in partnership with Orange County Transportation Authority to provide connections between The Ranch and popular nearby destinations not currently being served by the public transportation network. Like our other RanchRide services, this is fare-free to residents. If this program proves popular with residents, we may continue it beyond the summer, and will be looking for your feedback on other potential destinations.
Can I charter a RanchRide vehicle for a private event?
Yes. RanchRide vans, which seat up to 14 passengers, or the mini-bus, which seats up to 30, may be chartered. Click here for more information and rates.
