Over the past several years, our community has discussed, debated and studied possible service options that meet today’s mobility needs. GET has contracted IBI Group to evaluate our existing services and recommend changes that can be implemented in a 1- to 3-year period.
In 2019, GET introduced microtransit service in southwest Bakersfield. This new, curb-to-curb shuttle service allows riders to request customized trips within the zone. Since then, our version of rideshare service—now known as On-Demand Microtransit—has expanded into the Downtown core area and parts of east Bakersfield, such as Old Town Kern (OTK).
On the heels of public health crisis cause by COVID-19 which required us to quickly respond to the sharp decline in ridership with reduced service operations, GET recognizes that to improve our services all recovery efforts require community input.
GET, in partnership with IBI Group, wants to hear from the community directly. This includes riders that rely on our services every day, as well as people who may one day consider any of our services into their regular routine.
