The wait times are too long considering that Fresno is not a “public transportation mecca” and the DEMAND for public transit just isn’t here in Fresno, yet others feel Fresno Area Express (FAX) isn’t too bad. Examples of public transportation include city buses, trolley buses, trams (or light rail) and trains, rapid transit (metro/subway/underground, etc.) and ferries. But Fresno just does not have these options.

Some subway and busses cost $ 2.00 a ride, and you are allowed a free transfer from subway to bus or from bus to bus within three hours. If you are only using mass transit to go to and from work, it would cost $ 20 per week– $ 2.00 each way 5 days a week.
