This mobile responsive website can be accessed by smartphone, tablet or computer.

At Cruz511, you can also find out the safest way to lock up your bike to ensure it’s there when you return, the closest station for charging your electric vehicle and places you can meet up with your carpool and leave your car parked during the workday. A trip planner for bike, bus, walking and driving trips and cost of driving calculator are other useful tools found on the Cruz511 website.

Cruz511 is a new service of the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission designed to be a one-stop shop for transportation users as well as a go-to place for information about emergencies that impact the transportation system.
