The Santa Maria Regional Transit service will implement route and schedule changes starting on Sunday.
Transit service managers say the routes have been re-timed to facilitate transfers and improve reliability.
Most will operate on a 45-minute frequency.
Digital bus passes will also be available on the city's smart-pay app.
SMRT will be offering free rides from Sunday, January 2nd through Friday, January 7 to help riders adjust to the new changes.
