Touring the Central California Coast with the RTA

Moostone Beach RTA bus route 12

When summer comes, roads along California’s Central Coast get busy. Take the bus to Hearst Castle, Moonstone Beach in Cambria, Morro Bay’s lovely Embarcadero and other destinations in the county and avoid the stress of rushed tourists passing on narrow two lane roads, the frustration of no parking spots along the beach and driving at a crawl, and forgetting to bring coins to feed the parking meter in downtown SLO.

San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority bus routes will take you to the front door of all the major Central Coast attractions. Leave the stress of driving at home- you’re now on vacation! OR, if you are commuting to work, you’ll FEEL like you are on vacation!

Here’s an overview of where RTA routes 9, 10, 11 will take you:

Now that you’re excited about traveling stress free, here’s an overview of how to use the RTA bus system in the county:

If you can’t get enough beautiful beaches, local cafes, wine tasting and shopping on RTA routes 9, 10, 12, RTA also runs the South County Area Transit.

Travel on SCAT to great places in the Five Cities area; the Pismo Beach Pier, Pismo Prime Outlets shopping Center, Shell Beach Dinosaur Caves with a great park for kids, Butterfly Park, Oceano Dunes, lovely Arroyo Grande Village, and Grover Beach Ramona Garden Park.

All RTA and SCAT buses can accommodate bicycles and are handicap accessible.
