The Santa Rosa Transit Mall is a major transfer point for several bus routes serving the city of Santa Rosa, California, located in Sonoma County, north of San Francisco, in the United States.

Location[edit]

The Santa Rosa Transit Mall is located along Second Street (between B Street and Santa Rosa Avenue), configured as a set of bus stops within the city block. Its location being close to downtown and across from Santa Rosa Plaza allows passengers to work, shop, dine, and relax within the Transit Mall's vicinity. Its proximity also to US 101 and CA 12 allows commuters from Sonoma County and other locations to drive to the Transit Mall for commuter buses beyond Santa Rosa.

[5] Other major bus agencies, including Greyhound, which provides connections between Santa Rosa and the rest of the country, and Sonoma County Airport Express that provides connections between Santa Rosa and two Bay Area airports (SFO and OAK), do not stop at the Transit Mall; instead, these services stop at a hotel south of downtown.[6][7] The city is also on the main route of the future Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit service, but, the railway station will not be built at the Transit Mall; instead, it will be built at Historic Downtown (Railroad Square),[8] in which service from the Transit Mall is currently provided by Santa Rosa CityBus.

Features[edit]

Being the main transfer point in Santa Rosa, the transit mall offers two area platforms on either side of Second Street, being the North Platform and South Platform, which allows passengers to transfer between buses easily. A multi-story parking lot (park-and-ride) is available just next to the Transit Mall, allowing commuters and visitors to drive from Sonoma County and beyond to park and ride their commuter buses or shop at nearby downtown and Santa Rosa Plaza. Other features include:

  • Disabled access throughout the Transit Mall
  • Hotels, shops, banks, and services located at:
    • Downtown
    • Historic Downtown
    • Santa Rosa Plaza
