There's a new way to get around San Luis Obispo County.
The Regional Transit Authority (RTA) rolled out seven new buses Wednesday.
The buses will replace older ones on the fleet.
Now, more than half of the RTA buses will be more accessible for people who use a wheelchair.
Instead of a lift system, these new buses have ramps so wheel chairs can roll right on them.
Geoff Straw, RTA executive director, says, "We're happy to get these buses. They're much more reliable, much cleaner burning, too. They don't emit as much exhaust emissions as the older buses did."
RTA and South County Transit provide services seven days a week throughout San Luis Obispo County, with hourly service Monday through Friday.
