    Starting in August, bus riders can begin using the new Route 12X for bidirectional express service from the Santa Maria Transit Center to Orcutt, the Santa Maria Public Airport, Delta and Righetti High School, among other stops.

    This is another example of Santa Maria Regional Transit (SMRT) expanding to meet needs of its riders. Route 12X will run on a 60-minute frequency Monday through Friday. No weekend service.

    SMRT is one of the best deals in town, especially with high gas prices. Try out the smart way to travel.

Children under 6 years of age ride free when accompanied with a paying adult. A Day Pass is $3, the 7-Day Pass is $12, and a 31-Day Pass is $31.
