Duarte Transit is the transit system serving the City of Duarte, California.

History

Duarte Transit was formed in 1984. Service was formerly free to ride, funded by a sales tax surcharge, up until April 1, 2019 when regular Foothill Transit bus fares started being imposed on existing routes with new 35-foot battery-electric buses. Connections are available to the Metro Rail Gold Line and Foothill Transit.

In Fall 2017, Duarte City Council entered into an agreement with Foothill Transit to operate fixed-route local service within the City of Duarte with new 35 foot battery-electric buses. The changeover was supposed to be scheduled to begin on January 1, 2019, but it was delayed by three months to April 1, 2019.
