The San Benito County Local Transportation Authority (LTA) is the public transportation agency of San Benito County, California, immediately south of Silicon Valley (Santa Clara County).

Transportation Services[edit]

Bus[edit]

Bus service is exclusive to northern San Benito County, where the LTA operates and administers County Express, providing fixed local bus service in the city of Hollister, regional bus service between Hollister, San Juan Bautista and Gilroy, as well as a dial-a-ride service in northern San Benito County.

Local bus service in Hollister is currently organized into a red, green, and blue line. The green and blue run in a loop through Hollister, the green line running clockwise and the blue line running counter-clockwise. The red line operates North-South from the south side of the loop, continuing to its terminus near the City of Hollister Municipal Airport.

NOTE: The Union Pacific Railroad currently runs local freight service to Hollister (Hollister local), which is a stub of the now abandoned line to Tres Pinos in San Benito County. Although there are no plans or possibility to reopen the abandoned rail line or implement a passenger train service such as Caltrain, the city of Hollister grew around the now abandoned line. Between Hollister and Tres Pinos, part of the rail right of way was used for the California State Route 25 alignment.
