Visalia-Fresno Bus Service to Launch

The City of Visalia invites you to attend a ribbon cutting and unveiling event for Visalia’s new V-Line, an affordable and convenient bus service between Visalia and Fresno.

The ceremony takes place Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at 9 a.m. at the Visalia Transit Center just one day before it makes its first official route.

Immediately following the ribbon cutting, Visalia Transit invites the media and the public to hop aboard the shuttle and make the Visalia to Fresno loop. Tipper, the Visalia Rawhide mascot, will be aboard as V-LINE makes its first appearance at Fresno Airport Terminal and Fresno State, where TimeOut, the CSU Fresno mascot, will be there to greet him. The tour is expected to take three hours and a boxed lunch will be served for each guest. Reservations are required to ride.

After years of requests from Central Valley commuters for a transportation service between the valley’s two major cities, V-LINE will transport airport travelers, students, and commuters between Fresno and Visalia. Each V-LINE shuttle will feature comfortable seats, free WiFi, USB charging ports, storage racks, and wheelchair accessibility.

Beginning November 18, the V-LINE’s first bus will leave at 4 a.m. on weekdays from the Visalia Transit Center, followed by stops at Visalia Municipal Airport, Fresno Yosemite Airport, and Fresno State University before the return route back to Visalia.
