Five Events, One Weekend, Total Success!

YoloTD staff, Sophia Linnevers, Pa Nhia Yang, and Hayary Torres teaching attendees of the City of Davis’ Travel Training event on Yolobus services and how to navigate the public transit system.

We’re thrilled to report that YoloTD staff had an action-packed weekend of community engagement, connecting with Yolo County residents at five different events on Saturday, April 29, and Sunday, April 30. Our team was out and about, promoting the use of public transit, and educating the public on the different programs, services, and projects that YoloTD has to offer.

We kicked off the weekend by providing two Yolobus vehicles at California Duck Days, hosted by the Yolo Basin Foundation, which was a massive success. All tour trips were fully booked, and attendees were thrilled to learn about the importance of the wetlands in the area. At the same time, YoloTD staff participated in the City of Davis’ Travel Training Program, where attendees could learn about the various modes of transit available to them. Our team also made their presence known at the Woodland Public Library’s Read, Rumble, and Rev event, engaging with people of all ages and blasting the horns of our vehicles.

The community connection continued on Sunday, April 30, with YoloTD staff attending both the Bike Rodeo/May is Bike Month Kick-Off hosted by Breathe California and the Touch-A-Truck event hosted by the Davis Sunrise Rotary. Both events were incredibly well-attended, providing YoloTD with ample opportunities to educate potential riders on bike safety, promote upcoming programs and services, and encourage the use of public transit.

Finally, we would like to note that the Touch-A-Truck event hosted by Davis Sunrise Rotary was held to fundraise for an environmentally and kid-friendly splash pad in Central Park, honoring the late Officer Natalie Corona. We were proud to be a part of such a worthy cause.

Overall, it was an exciting and fruitful weekend for YoloTD, and we’re proud of the work our staff put in to connect with the community. We look forward to continuing these efforts and promoting the benefits of public transit throughout Yolo County.
