With tens of thousands of people, if not more, possibly descending upon Santa Cruz Monday to catch a glimpse of the Tour of California, transportation-minded organizations around town are urging spectators to use alternative transportation.Read more In the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
Locals who plan to ride the bus should know that Metro is offering two park and ride lots. One is in Scotts Valley behind the Kings Village Shopping Center and King Village Drive and Blue Bonnet. The other is at Highway 1 and Soquel Drive near Dominican Hospital. The bus stop is in front of the hospital.
Bus riders from Scotts Valley can hop on route "35 Santa Cruz" or the Highway 17 Express, while riders from Live Oak and South County should use bus route "71 Santa Cruz." Riders without a Highway 17 bus pass should use bus 35 to save money.
